PREMIERSHIP star Greg Kiltie is on the brink of joining Morton on a loan deal until the end of the season, the Tele can reveal.

The Kilmarnock winger was tipped for the top after bursting onto the scene in 2013 as an exciting 16-year-old before his progress was halted by two serious injuries that left him sidelined for lengthy spells.

Killie boss Steve Clarke said he was looking to let the 21-year-old go out on loan this month to get game time — with the Ton now on the brink of clinching his 

The Tele understands the club have been locked in negotiations with the Ayrshire outfit this week and hope to tie the deal up to bring the wide man to Cappielow.

Kiltie, a former Scotland under-19 international, has only had 10 minutes of game time this year in the league, coming off the bench three times.

The talented 21-year-old could be the first of two new faces at the club this week as boss Jonatan Johansson runs the rule over another possible recruit.

Former Ross County midfielder Dylan Dykes has also been on trial down at Parklea over the last week as the Ton manager looks to bolster his ranks.

Funds have been freed up after Connor Bell and Ruaridh Langan left the club when their contracts were cancelled on Tuesday night.

Bell made three appearances for the Ton and suffered several injury troubles.

Langan spent the first half of the season on loan with Annan Athletic, but failed to make an appearance for the League Two side.

The pair’s exit has freed up some wages for Johansson to use, and while the Ton manager refused to comment on possible arrivals, he did admit he was looking to strengthen his squad by utilising the loan market.

Former Rangers youth player Dykes left the Ibrox club in 2016 to join the Highland outfit, making just two first team appearances in that time.

The 22-year-old has mainly been involved with the reserves and was one of the players, alongside former County right-back and now Morton player Reghan Tumilty, who won the development league back in 2017 with the Staggies.

The midfielder spent the latter part of last season on loan to League One side Stranraer, where he made 14 appearances.

Johansson says he will continue to assess the midfielder over the coming days.

He told the Tele: “For a club like Morton, having people on trial is the perfect way to have a look at players.

“If they come recommended — and they’re in a position that you’re looking for — it’s an efficient way to get to know someone better, especially players who haven’t been getting first team action.

“It’s an important part of recruitment to bring in trialists and we’ll continue to have a look at Dylan.”
