Kilmarnock have signed defender Robbie Deas from Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

The centre back played the full game as Caley lost out to Celtic in Saturday’s Scottish Cup final and made more than 100 appearances for the Highland side.

The 23-year-old, who has been capped by Scotland at under-21 level, came through the Parkhead youth system and has also had loan spells at Alloa Athletic and Cowdenbeath.

He joined Caley in 2020 but will now move to Rigby Park on a free transfer as manager Derek McInnes’ first signing of the summer.

“I fully understand the size of this club and the demands that will be placed on me as a player, so I’m excited about taking this step in my career,” he told the club’s website.

“It was inspiring to speak with the manager about his ambitions for the club and it became clear that Kilmarnock would be a perfect fit for me. I’m determined to kick on and do my best for the manager and supporters over the next two years.”
