Livingston manager David Martindale says Liverpool talent Adam Lewis ‘is taking a big chance’ by swapping Merseyside for the Scottish Premiership.

The versatile left-back signed a long-term contract at Liverpool last season and spent time on loan in France with Amiens and in England at Plymouth Argyle. Now he heads to Scotland for the first time on loan with Martindale’s side.

The Livingston manager said of Lewis: “I am excited to bring a player of Adam’s quality in to the club. From the first phone call that led to me researching the player, I have had nothing but positivity about the lad. I really like what I have seen from the footage and the opinions I have had back on the player have all been very good.

“Adam can play anywhere on the left-hand side but has played a lot at left-back. I think with the qualities he possesses, we will see him higher up the park influencing the game in the opponent’s half.

“He has a great left foot and can look after the ball in tight situations. He is a competitor with a will to win and fits right into the ethos at the club. He is taking a big chance by moving his young family up to Scotland which speaks volumes for the lad. I have no doubt we will be a good fit for one another.”
