LIVINGSTON have secured the signing of French-Tunisian striker Aymen Souda – and are running the rule over former 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.

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.

Holt believes Souda has already illustrated the mix of attitude and ability needed to become a smash-hit is Scotland.

Holt lauded: “We feel he has a lot to offer and hopefully the fans see this over the coming months.

“He is very different to what we have at the club and will bring a new dimension.

“Our opinion is that he will be a fantastic signing for Livingston. He spent a week in Budapest with us and impressed with his style of play and his attitude towards everything we are doing at the football club.”

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.

Holt added: “We are awaiting Aymen’s International Clearance and we hope that it is through for Saturday, all going well.”

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.
