Jaze Kabia has joined Scottish Premiership side Livingston. 

The 20-year old striker was joined the Shelbourne first team in 2019, having signed from Cobh Ramblers in 2017.

In a parting statement to the Shels fans, Kabia wrote, "My time at the club has left me with some great memories especially my part in the team that won the First Division trophy."

The First Division side pick up just a small compensation fee from Livingston.

He joins a side that currently sit 5th in the Scottish Premiership table.

Livingston boss Davie Martindale said, "He’s in an age category where we have been short in recent years and we felt it was important to add quality around this age. Jaze came in to train for a week or so and showed up extremely well in training with the 1st team.

 

"He has first-team football experience with Shelbourne and has scored goals in the top division in Ireland as well as the 1st division.

"I’m grateful to the board for allowing me to bring a player in that has cost a small compensation fee but it shows the club are willing to invest in young talent even with today’s economic conditions.

"He has come on board knowing there is a pathway to first-team football – how quick he gets there will be entirely down to his short-term development but there’s no doubt that he can add depth to our first-team squad just now.

"We may look at potential loan options for Jaze as I think regular first-team football is so important at this stage of his development but that’s a bridge we will cross at the end of the month. In the meantime, he will fight for a place in our matchday squad once his International Transfer Certificate comes through.

"I am really happy to get Jaze on board and I’m excited that we have another very talented player at a good age pushing for first-team football."
