Lafferty was up for extending his stay at Rugby Park despite the Ayrshire outfit’s relegation to the cinch Championship, but the pair parted ways in controversial circumstances. Kilmarnock claimed the former Norwich City striker demanded 4x his Premiership wage in Scotland’s second tier.

 

It’s a one-year deal for Lafferty and it is subject to him passing a medical with the club who finished fourth in the Cypriot First Division last season. Lafferty will have the chance to return to European football, with his prospective new club entering the Europa League at the third qualifying round stage.
