Norwich City youngster Isak Thorvaldsson is on trial at Scottish Premiership side Livingston with the view to a January loan. 

The 20-year-old recently had a spell in the Icelandic top-flight with IA Akranes but is now looking to further his development elsewhere after the conclusion of the domestic season in his native country. 

Thorvaldsson has played in the Scottish Premiership previously with St Mirren, but saw a brief loan spell terminated after Jim Goodwin revealed he didn't think the midfielder displayed the commitment he wanted from a member of his squad. 

The versatile midfielder subsequently returned to Iceland on loan and has been playing there since August 2020. Last season, Thorvaldsson scored three goals and registered 3 assists as he helped IA survive against the drop by a single point. 

Livingston boss David Martindale has confirmed the Canaries youngster has joined them on trial alongside an ex-Lazio full-back as they begin to step up their preparations for January. 

“Isak is in with us after having played in the Icelandic league. He’s 20-years-old and someone we’re going to have a wee look at that might give us options in January," the Livi boss told the Daily Record. 

"That’s us now really looking towards the winter window. Honestly, you really only get about six weeks before the recruitment has to pick up again."
