Salim signs up
We are delighted to announce that striker Salim Kouider-Aïssa has agreed terms on a deal to join the Diamonds following his release from Premiership side Livingston.
The 25-year-old striker played in the youth systems at Hearts and Motherwell before appearing for a number of Scottish sides. Coming to prominence at Queen’s Park, Kouider-Aïssa earned his move to the Premiership before loan spells at Partick Thistle and back at Queens.
A powerful presence in the forward line, Salim will join the club on a two-year deal. Subject to SFA approval, he will go straight into Saturday’s squad to face Annan Athletic, and we look forward to seeing him in the Diamond.
Manager Ian Murray told airdriefc.com: "I'm really glad Salim has chosen to come to Airdrie. We're looking forward to working with him, and I feel he'll provide a real threat upfront and great competition.
"I'd like to thank Livingston and David Martindale for the quick, transparent manner in which the deal was done."
