CHERRIES have confirmed striker Mikael Ndjoli has joined Scottish Premiership outfit Kilmarnock on a six-month loan.

The Daily Echo last week revealed talks had been held between the two clubs over the 19-year-old, with a deal having now been agreed.

Frontman Ndjoli played a key role for Carl Fletcher’s under-21s last season, scoring 24 goals to help Cherries finish third in the southern division of the Central League.

His positive form earned him a spot on the bench for the first team during Cherries’ FA Cup defeat at Wigan in January.

Formerly of Millwall, Ndjoli was one of six under-21 players to agree new one-year contracts this summer.

Three-time Scottish Cup winners Killie finished fifth in their respective top flight last season.

They are managed by former Reading and West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke.
