Former Sunderland striker Kyle Lafferty has left Kilmarnock as Greg Kiltie, Mitch Pinnock and Kirk Broadfoot join the forward in leaving the Ayrshire club.

Lafferty made a huge impact at his fourth club inside 18 months, having had spells with Sarpsborg 08, Sunderland and Italian side Reggina before moving to Kilmarnock in February, scoring 13 goals in as many matches.

Academy product Kiltie departs after over 100 appearances and there is interest in him south of the border, while a return to England likely beckons for Pinnock too. 36-year-old Broadfoot is also on the move after featuring prominently for the club in their successful spell under former manager Steve Clarke, securing consecutive top six finishes.

Left-back Calum Waters is set to sign a new contract while talks continue over a deal for Chris Burke. Youngsters Tomas Brindley, Kyle Connell and Curtis Lyle are also exploring the possibility of extending their Rugby Park stays.

Kilmarnock will play Scottish Championship football for the first time in 28 years next season after relegation from the Premiership last month.
