Kyle Vassell admitted Kilmarnock felt “like home” as he listed several reasons why he signed a two-year contract extension which will keep him at the club until June 2025.
The 30-year-old striker joined Killie from San Diego Loyal on a deal until the end of the season on January 1 and has become a key member of Derek McInnes’ squad, who are battling for cinch Premiership survival.
Vassell – who has played for a plethora of clubs including Cheltenham, Rotherham and Blackpool – told Killie’s official website: “It’s well documented that I’ve represented a number of clubs, but there’s something about Kilmarnock that instantly made the place feel like home.
“The passion of supporters and intensity of the league is exactly what I was searching for at this stage of my career.
“The opportunity to continue working under the manager would have been enough to sign an extension alone, so it’s one of the easiest decisions I’ve had to make.
“Support from the boss, coaching staff and fans has been incredible since I joined the club and I’m determined to repay every one of them for the faith that they have shown in me.”
