Kilmarnock have beefed up their goalkeeping department by signing Laurentiu Branescu on a season-long loan from Italian giants Juventus.

Branescu becomes new Killie manager Angelo Alessio’s first signing since taking charge at the Scottish Premier League side with the pair having worked together in Turin.

The Romanian youth international has enjoyed spells in his homeland including a stint with our pre-season opponents Dinamo Bucharest.

The 25-year-old has also had spells in Italy, Croatia, Cyprus and Lithuania.

Branescu is looking forward to playing for Kilmarnock, who will be hoping to challenge for the SPL title in the new 2019/20 season.

"I am very glad to be here and I hope I can play my part in the club enjoying another great season," Branescu said.

"I've been made to feel very welcome so far and I can't wait to play in front of the Killie fans."

Branescu will wear shirt number 12 this season and everyone at the club wishes him well for the campaign ahead.
