Kilmarnock sign Kyle Magennis after midfielder terminates Hibs deal early SNS Group

Kyle Magennis has joined Kilmarnock on a two-year contract after agreeing to terminate his deal at Hibernian early.

The midfielder made 49 appearances in three injury-hit years at Easter Road after joining from St Mirren in October 2020, scoring seven goals.

He signed a five-year contract with the club, but his time in Leith was severely hampered by a succession of long-term injury issues.

His last game in green and white came in the 2-0 victory over Killie in February, after which he was ruled out for the remainder of the campaign.

Magennis will now link up with the Rugby Park side to become manager Derek McInnes’ second summer signing following on from the acquisition of Robbie Deas from Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

“The gaffer has always been interested in me and he’s someone I wanted to work with, so over the past few weeks the move has fallen into place,” Magennis told the club’s website.

“It’s a fresh start for me. I’ve had a tough few seasons with injuries, but I’m feeling good and ready to go. I know that if I’m playing, I’ll be a big asset to the club.”
