Clingan signs Kilmarnock deal

Northern Ireland international Sammy Clingan has signed a new 12-month deal with Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock.

The midfielder was out of contract with the Ayrshire club but agreed new terms at Rugby Park on the first day of pre-season training.

Injuries restricted Clingan to just 18 appearances for Killie last season, but he was part of the Northern Ireland squad this summer that faced Uruguay and Chile prior to the start of the World Cup.

The 30-year-old joined Killie in January 2013 after leaving Doncaster.

In a buy summer at Kilmarnock, boss Allan Johnston has seen 17 players leave the club.
