Kilmarnock recruit Northern Ireland midfielder Jude Winchester

Kilmarnock are set to complete the signing of Northern Irish midfielder Jude Winchester, STV has learned.

The 18-year-old is currently with Linfield, having risen through the ranks at the Belfast club.

Described by Linfield as being a "tenacious midfielder with good pace and great work ethic that has the ability to go past players with ease," Winchester becomes the latest in a long line of summer signings by Killie boss Kenny Shiels.

Kilmarnock have also completed the signing of Mo Sissoko on a loan deal from Udinese until the end of the season, the defender returning to the club having spent last season at Rugby Park.
