The club can confirm the arrival of Irish midfielder Jack Byrne on a one-year contract, subject to international clearance.

The 22-year-old will join Killie following his departure from Oldham Athletic, where he has spent the past 18 months.

Byrne, who has represented the Republic of Ireland at every level from U16 to U21, started his career at Manchester City.

During his time at City, he worked under Patrick Vieira and featured in the UEFA Youth League before being sent on loan to Dutch side Cambuur as well as Blackburn Rovers.

A short spell at Wigan Athletic followed before his time with his loan spell with League Two outfit Oldham was turned into a permanent transfer in January 2018.

The move marks Killie's fourth signing of the week following loan deals for Greg Stewart, Aaron Tshibola and Bright Enobakhare.

Stuart Findlay, Mikael Ndjoli, Ross Millen and Daniel Bachmann arrived at Rugby Park earlier this summer.
