Livingston is expected to sign Andrew Shinnie following his departure from Charlton Athletic, according to the Daily check-in.

Livingston is set to lure the midfielder to Scotland.

Shinnie, who is 32, was released by Charlton at the end of last season.

He has since weighed his options and is on his way back to the Scottish Premiership.

Shinnie made 31 appearances last season for Charlton and scored three goals and had six assists.

He started his career with the Rangers and played twice for their first team before playing at Dundee and Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

The Scotsman moved to England in 2013 for Birmingham City and spent four years on the books at St. Andrew’s.

He made 73 appearances for the Blues and scored six goals, before being loaned to Rotherham United and Hibernian.

Luton Town came to call him in 2017 and he became an important player for the Hats, helping them move from League 2 to the Championship during his time at Kenilworth Road.

Charlton then landed it last summer, but it was not part of Nigel Adkins’ long-term plans.

Thoughts?

It was a slight surprise to see Shinnie leave the Valley at the end of last season, but he will be a solid signing for Livingston.

He has proven himself in the Scottish top flight in the past and will be delighted to return to familiar surroundings.
