Two new arrivals for Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock have signed Josh Magennis and Tope Obadeyi, a former England under-20 international, on three-year contracts.

Left-winger Obadeyi, 24, started his career with Bolton but made only four appearances and went on a succession of loan moves, including a year in the Portuguese top flight with Rio Ave.

Magennis was released by Aberdeen in the summer after playing 123 matches in four years at Pittodrie.

The Northern Ireland international scored 12 goals for the club and made most of his appearances from the bench, playing up front, on the wing and at right-back. The 23-year-old ended last season on loan at St Mirren, failing to find the net in 13 games.
