Livingston set to sign Marc McCallum on permanent deal following his release at Dundee United



Goalkeeper Marc McCallum is set to rejoin Livingston on a permanent deal after negotiating his release form Dundee United.

The shot-stopper made 13 appearances on loan at the Lions during the first half of the campaign before returning to Tannadice at the tail end of December.

But the 22-year-old, whose solitary United appearance came in a 3-1 defeat to Aberdeen in May 2014, is heading back to the West Lothian outfit after his exit from the Tayside club was confirmed.

McCallum, who has also spent spells on loan at Forfar, Peterhead, Berwick Rangers, and Arbroath, said: “I have loved my time at United, although obviously I wish I had enjoyed more game time.

“I have learned a great deal about football in my time there and leave with many happy memories and friends.

“It is the right time for me to now take my career further elsewhere and I am very much looking forward to my next move.”

McCallum is set to become new Livingston manager David Hopkin’s third signing after the former Scotland internationalist snapped up experienced midfielder Mark Fotheringham and recruited Hibs playmaker Sam Stanton on loan last week.
