Ben Chrisene joins Killie

Kilmarnock FC are delighted to announce the signing of Ben Chrisene on loan from Aston Villa subject to SFA approval and international clearance

The 18 year old English left back joins Killie on a loan deal until the end of the season and will wear the number 33 shirt.

Ben is highly regarded at Aston Villa, winning the FA Youth Cup in 2021 and has featured in the club’s first team pre-season this summer, as he now looks to gain more first team minutes.

Upon signing Ben said –

“I’m buzzing to be fair, It’s exciting for me and for the club as well I hope, on a personal note it’s good for me to play every week and the club has such a high ambition and pushing for top six is what everyone wants, hopefully I can help.

I’m a left back, see myself as a dynamic player if the gaffer needs me to adapt, I’m very powerful, good on the ball and can defend.

It’s exciting coming to Scotland, not many people get to experience Scottish football, I’ve been told all about it and the competitiveness and the skill within it, which not everyone knows about.

I’m really looking forward to Saturday”
