Seventh heaven for Livingston boss Gary Holt as Ibrahima Savane becomes latest summer signing


LIVINGSTON have made French left-back Ibrahima Savane their seventh summer signing following a successful trial period.

Savane, 25, has penned a two-year contract with the option of a further year after the rangy left-back impressed in the Lions’ 2-0 friendly win over Alloa last Tuesday.

He joins from Ligue 2 outfit Beziers, where he made 24 appearances last term and scored one goal.

And Livi boss Gary Holt has backed Savane to hit the ground running in Scotland after hailing his pedigree in French football.

Holt said: “Ibrahima is a talented footballer who has played in Ligue 2 in France, which is a very good standard.

“He came in and trained with the squad over the last week or so and played around 75 minutes against Alloa Athletic last Tuesday.

“He did well and we think he will adapt to Scottish Football fairly quickly and be an asset to the team going forward.”

Savane’s arrival follows the captures of Nicky Devlin, Marvin Bartley, Robbie Crawford, Cece Pepe, Matija Sarkic and Aymen Souda.
