Livingston have bolstered their squad with the arrival of striker Ibra Sekajja, who has signed on until the end of the season.

The 22-year-old’s arrival is expected to go straight into the squad for this afternoon’s crucial encounter with Alloa at the Energy Assets Arena.

The Ugandan-born player has spent the majority of his career with Premier League outfit Crystal Palace but has also had loan stints with Kettering Town, Bromley, MK Dons and Barnet.

He signed for John Hughes’ Inverness Caley Thistle in October after his release from Palace, but was deemed surplus to requirements in the Highlands and exited the club earlier this month.

Livi boss Mark Burchill will hope Sekajja can add some firepower to his attacking options as the club bids to ease their relegation fears.

The Lions are currently bottom of the Championship and five points adrift of this afternoon’s visitors Alloa in ninth.

Securing Sekajja’s signature is a much-needed boost for the club after a transfer embargo was imposed last August for undeclared bonus payments. The ban was lifted on Hogmanay.
