Livingston have completed the signing of Liverpool left-back Adam Lewis on a season-long loan deal.
Tony Macaroni Arena manager David Martindale spoke previously of hoping to secure loan signings from some of the English Premier League’s biggest clubs. He has managed that with his first loan signature, Lewis joining the West Lothian club after first-team experience with Liverpool.
The 21-year-old joins Livingston after spending the first-half of last season on loan at French Ligue 2 outfit Amiens SC before returning to England in January and spending six months in League One with Plymouth Argyle.
A Livingston statement reads: “Livingston FC is delighted to announce the signing of Adam Lewis on a season-long-loan from English Premier League giants Liverpool. Lewis is highly regarded behind the scenes at Anfield, and boasts the Liverpool icon, and current Rangers manager, Steven Gerrard as one of his high-profile admirers.
“Gerrard spent a spell as Adam’s coach in the youth set-up on Merseyside, with the former England captain stating that Lewis was one of the best players going forward he had seen at under-18 level. The England U20 international made his first-team debut in the FA Cup fourth-round replay win over Shrewsbury Town at Anfield in February 2020.
“He has also regularly trained with Jürgen Klopp’s senior squad. He signed a new long-term contract with Liverpool in July 2020 – his second fresh deal in the space of 17 months.”
