Jeroen Tesselaar has reached an agreement in principle to join Kilmarnock this summer.
The Dutch defender, who left St Mirren last month, will put pen to paper on a two-year deal subject to a medical.
Talks between the club and Tesselaar’s agent Humphrey Nijman took place this week with an agreement reached over the past two days.
Speaking to STV, Nijman said: “We’ve reached a principle agreement with Kilmarnock for two years.
“We talked over the weekend and again earlier this week and the deal will happen once he has a medical.”
No date has yet been set for the medical with the player due to go on holiday on Sunday.
Nijman says the full-back is delighted to be staying in Scotland, adding: “The player has made his decision. There was interest from other clubs in Scotland but he has made his mind up to go to Kilmarnock.”
And the player appeared to confirm the style of football under Kenny Shiels played a key part in his decision.
He told Voetbal Primeur in his homeland: “I chose Kilmarnock because they are a good footballing team. They play attacking football and this way suits me.”
Tesselaar made 41 appearances for Danny Lennon’s men last season after joining from Telstar .
