Kilmarnock are close to signing two promising Nigerian players says manager Kenny Shiels.

23-year old defender Papa Idris and 22-year old midfielder Reuben Gabriel could be snapped up from Nigerian club Kano Pillars before the March 31 deadline.

"We are working on it. It hasn't been concluded yet," he said.

"They are international players and it's exciting.

"It gives us a chance to develop our younger players with them being here. They fit into the way we play, which is good.

"There is a lot of stuff to be done but we are hopeful of it going through.

"Hopefully we can get it concluded as soon as we can."
