Republic of Ireland youth international Deji Sotona has vowed to showcase his talent at Kilmarnock after moving from Nice to Rugby Park on loan.
The Waterford-born winger was previously at Manchester United before being signed for Nice by then manager Patrick Vieira.
The 19-year-old spent the final four months of last season on loan with Brentford, where he played for the B team.
Sotona is a former youth sprinter and Killie say he was registered as the fastest player at Old Trafford during his spell in Manchester.
After signing a season-long loan, he told Kilmarnock’s website: “It feels great to be here, I can’t wait to get started, I’d been waiting a while to get out on this loan and this should be a very good move.
“I want to showcase my talent and get game time here. I spoke to the manager (Derek McInnes) and he’s given me the opportunity to come here and play first-team football and I believe Kilmarnock will be a good club to play for.
“I’m a hard working player, I like to get goals and be direct, I like to win. I can’t wait to get started.”
