Kilmarnock FC are delighted to announce the loan signing of Jeriel Dorsett from Reading FC subject to International clearance

The 20 year old English defender has joined on a one year loan deal, joining Killie following a successful season at Rochdale during which he played 45 matches in total and was voted the club’s young player of the season.

Upon choosing Killie Jeriel said –

“I’m excited to be here, I can’t wait to get started, I had a conversation with the gaffer on the phone and he was really keen to get me in, believing I can improve myself and help the team out which is all I want to do.

“I  see myself as a quick, strong player, I like to command things and enjoy the communication, I really don’t ever stop talking. I think I can make a difference to the team and add some composure, hopefully I can prove that out on the pitch”.

I asked the Reading fans on Twitter about him and they said this:

Yes,spent last year on loan at Rochdale and earned rave reviews,alot of people were hoping he would be able to step up into the 1st team squad,maybe 1 season to soon so going to Killie for a season makes sense,higher standard than Rochdale,big,strong and quick,great signing forya

Given the fact he played so many games for Rochdale and the reviews he received this looks like a really decent signing. McIness does like a big mobile team and that looks to be exactly what he's building

Our squad depth looks really good and it appears that we have options.

Welcome Jeriel !

You might be correct but I think Stokes and McGowan are more likely to be out the door before him

I’d agree with this. I think DM thinks that sanders is “raw” and needs time in terms of the top league but he has way more potential than the other 2 and every bit as ready now to stand in as required. Whether a loan move can be used to accelerate his development remains to be seen but I’d be very surprised if DM has given up on him.
