Former Carlisle United goalkeeper Shamal George looks set for a move to the Scottish Premiership.

The Colchester United man is the subject of a bid from Livingston, according to reports.

The Essex club have accepted the offer, reports transfer journalist Pete O'Rourke.

It could now see ex-United loanee George leave one of the Blues' League Two rivals close to the start of the season.

Colchester chairman Robbie Cowling previously said the U's had received a "derisory" bid for the keeper, but left the door open to a possible departure.

"If Livingston come up with enough money, they'll end up buying Shamal," said Cowling at an open day, as reported by The Gazette.

"It's important that we end up not standing in the way of players when a realistic and good bid has come in for them."

George has been at Colchester since August 2020.

He was on loan at Brunton Park from Liverpool in the 2017/18 season, making seven first-team appearances.

Livingston took on the Cumbrians in a pre-season friendly last week, winning 1-0 in the behind-closed-doors game in Largs.
