Kilmarnock owner Billy Bowie has disclosed that the hopes the club can make a signing in what remains of the January transfer window.

The Rugby Park side is looking for a striker to replace Eamonn Brophy, who left earlier this month to join St Mirren. Striker Andre Wright was recently on trail with the club, but failed to win a deal.

However, Bowie has revealed that after a meeting with manager Alex Dyer the club is looking to bring in at least one player in the January transfer window.

“We had a meeting”

“We had a meeting last week, and we had approved a sum to Alex to bring in an additional player. Hopefully that will give him enough funds to bring in the player we need.”

Kilmarnock’s need for a new striker is great when you consider that the team has struggled to score goals this season. The team has scored seven goals in its last 10 league games.

 

Firmly in middle of the table

Despite those struggles, Kilmarnock are firmly in the middle of the Premiership table. They are in seventh place, four points behind sixth place Dundee United.

However, the addition of a new striker could help the club possibly finish in the top six. A new striker could also provide the goals that end any thought of Kilmarnock getting dragged into a relegation battle.

It will be interesting to see if the Rugby Park side can add a striker before the transfer window slams shut. The club’s fans will certainly be hoping that is the case.
