Kenny Shiels' side are off to Easter Road to take on Hibs on Saturday and the Killie boss is optimistic that the striker can give his side a massive lift.
"I think he suits us and hopefully we will suit him as well," he said.
"We'll have a look at his fitness over the next few days as he comes into training and take it from there, but in the long-term we certainly think he'll be a strong addition to the squad.
"It's a move that could be mutually beneficial. We'd like to think that he can kick us on a little bit and, as a player, I think we can give him a platform to come and show what he can do again.
"He is a player that I think can enhance the squad and over the coming months we'll see how he gets on.
"It's a chance for the lad to kick on a bit."
Kilmarnock still have a host of injury problems, with only Gary Harkins of the casualties expected to be fit for the weekend.
However, Shiels is happy to throw in a few youngsters for the meeting with Pat Fenlon's side and is well aware that a victory would enable Killie to leapfrog the Easter Road men.
"It's a big game for us because we know it's always a hard place to go, but we also know there is a big carrot there for us –a win would take us up to the top end of the table.
"We still have our injury issues, but I'm not too concerned about it.
"It's an opportunity for some of the younger lads to come in and show that they are capable."
