Everton attacker Kieran Agard is happy with his loan chance at Kilmarnock.

The 21-year-old was offered the opportunity to move to Rugby Park on deadline day and was eager to make the move to Ayrshire.

"I was training at Everton last Monday and the gaffer told me Kilmarnock wanted to take me on loan," Agard told evertonfc.com.

"David Moyes recommended the club and said it would be a good move for me so I jumped at the chance.

"The manager pointed out that the SPL is a good league and Kilmarnock are doing well," he added.

"Killie were interested in getting a striker so they wanted me to come up and the manager felt I would do well here. He encouraged me to come up."
