Kilmarnock manager Tommy Wright is delighted to finally sign Daniel Armstrong after tracking the Wolves academy graduate since 2017.

Armstrong transferred from the Hamilton Accies academy to the Wolves youth system in 2017 but was unable to make the grade down south. He transferred to Raith Rovers in 2018 and returned to Kirkcaldy in 2019 following a brief stint with Ross County.

Form at Raith last season helped the Kirkcaldy club finish in the Scottish Championship’s promotion play-off spots, and as Kilmarnock find themselves in that division for the first time in 28 years, Wright is happy to land Armstrong until 2023: “I’ve known Daniel for a long time and I tried to sign him on loan when he was a youngster with Wolves.

“He’s someone I’ve kept an eye on and he’s got more experience and did extremely well with Raith last season, scoring goals and registering a number of assists. He’s an exciting player who is a good age with experience of this league, which is important and I believe there’s scope for Daniel to improve even further at Kilmarnock”
