DONE DEAL: Livingston bring ex-Arsenal striker Emmanuel-Thomas back to UK

Livingston have claimed "a bit of coup" after signing former Ipswich Town and Arsenal striker Jay Emmanuel-Thomas on a one-year contract.

The Scottish Premiership club have an option to extend the 29-year-old's deal by a further year.

Emmanuel-Thomas last played for PTT Rayong, who folded after finishing 11th in the 2019 Thailand top flight.

"He's a number of years left playing top-level football," head of football operations David Martindale said.

"He has shown a tremendous desire to get back playing at the top level and we are very excited at what Jay can bring to the table."
