Kilmarnock have won the race to sign Middlesbrough youngster Graeme Owens, skysports.com understands.

The 21-year-old was out of contract at the Riverside this summer and he opted to leave in search of first-team football.

Having spent a successful spell at Blackpool last season a number of Championship clubs showed an interest in the winger.

However, SPL outfit Kilmarnock have persuaded him to move north of the border.

Owens has agreed a two-year deal with an option for a third after he impressed Kilmarnock boss Jim Jefferies in training.
