Livingston complete Aymen Souda signing – as Lions run rule over ex-Belgium under-19 international

LIVINGSTON have secured the signing of French-Tunisian striker Aymen Souda – and are running the rule over ex-Standard Liege kid Martin Remacle.

Souda, 26, has penned a two-year contract with the option of a further year after impressing on trial during Livi’s pre-season training camp in Budapest.

He also notched an assist during the Lions’ 2-0 friendly triumph over Alloa on Tuesday evening.

Souda, in action for Dunarea Calarasi

Well-travelled Souda has previously plied his trade in Brazil, Tunisia, Spain, Turkey and Bulgaria and was a free agent after leaving Romanian second-tier side Dunarea Calarasi last month.

Souda is Livi’s sixth summer signing following the captures of Nicky Devlin, Marvin Bartley, Robbie Crawford, Cece Pepe and Matija Sarkic.

He could make his Lions debut against Falkirk in Saturday’s Betfred Cup curtain-raiser, providing the paperwork is processed by FIFA in time.

Meanwhile, midfielder Remacle is training with Livi as he bids to win a deal for the coming campaign.

The 22-year-old has been capped for Belgium at under-19 level and made three senior appearances for Standard Liege before joining Serie A side Torino in January 2017.

He was named on the bench for a league clash against Palermo two months later – but that would be as close as he would come to a first-team outing in Turin.

Remacles moved to Cypriot cracks Enonis Neon Paralimni last summer but was swiftly farmed out on loan to Ayia Napa in the second tier.
