According to the Daily Record, Kilmarnock are after ex-Hearts and Hamilton defender Lennard Sowah.

The defender impressed in his first stint in Scottish football with Hamilton. It earned him a move to Hearts where things unravlled very quickly.

Would Alessio be making a wise decision by moving move for the German defender?

Sowah isn’t Kilmarnock standard

Sowah is a left-back primarily. Kilmarnock’s first choice left-back is obviously Greg Taylor, so he wouldn’t be playing every week. Outwith that they have Calum Waters in cover for him.

There are other areas of the park Killie need to strengthen in more urgently. Their only senior striker is Eamonn Brophy and they haven’t replaced key stars from last season like Jordan Jones and Youssouf Mulumbu.

In any case, Alessio shouldn’t go for Sowah. He just isn’t good enough to play for a club like Kilmarnock.

At a smaller club like Hamilton he’s fine, but the 26-year-old’s step up to play for Hearts didn’t exactly flatter him.

His first touch was poor and Sowah’s decision making was also called into question. It was painstakingly obvious throughout his 15 games in maroon that he just wasn’t Hearts standard.

He spent six short months in Gorgie and it showed that he can’t make the step up to a bigger team. Given that Kilmarnock already have a couple of decent left-back options to pick from, they should avoid the German.

Sowah’s just not good enough to play for Kilmarnock. This is not the calibre of player he wants to be brining to Rugby Park.
