Killie Boss Steve Clarke on Killie's Jan Transfer Window Squad Changes:  "We got one or two of the younger ones out on loan, which was good and a little change in the goalkeeping department, which I needed. Cammy (Bell) was spending a lot of time in the treatment room and we were a little bit light there. We addressed that one with two good signings, Leo and young Jasko will do well for us. We needed cover at right back and I managed to get one from Wolverhampton with Aaron Simpson, who will add to the squad.  Aaron Tshibola came in a little earlier in the window so we’re in good shape. It’s always difficult to balance your squad in January, the aim is to ensure you are not caught short in the second half of the season.. I’ve known Aaron for quite a while and I worked with him at Reading and Aston Villa and I know the qualities he’s got and what he can bring to the squad.  The summer will be the time to balance the squad properly and hopefully build an even stronger squad
