Jackson extends life at Livingston
Darren Jackson has impressed in his time at Almondvale
Darren Jackson has impressed at Almondvale
Darren Jackson has signed up for runaway First Division leaders Livingston until the end of the season.

The former Scotland international moved to Almondvale on a month's loan from Hearts after Tynecastle manager Craig Levein made it clear the 34-year-old striker was not in his first-team plans.

Livingston manager Jim Leishman told the Scotsman: "Darren will be here until the end of the season and that's great news for the club.

"He's obviously a very talented player and has shown great attitude since he came here.


"I think it shows the ambition we have at the club to win promotion that we can get players like Darren to come here."

Livingston are currently 13 points clear at the top of the table and Jackson may opt to prolong his stay if the club reach the Premier League next season.

The league leaders have also signed French defender Philipe Brinquin on loan from Le Havre.

Brinquin had a trial with Bradford City during January, but he has landed in Scotland after failing to sufficiently impress Bantams boss Jim Jefferies.

Three seasons

The 29-year-old spent three seasons with Leyton Orient, before moving to Rennes and then onto Le Havre.

Brinquin believes he will need to be given time, saying: "It will take me time to adapt, but I want to be involved as soon as possible and help Livingston win the First Division.

"Livingston have a big project for the future and I think more teams should be like that."
