Ian Murray is due to make his sixth addition of the transfer window by addressing a problem position.
The Raith Rovers boss added left-back Kieran Ngwenya on loan from Aberdeen on Thursday – ending a long wait for new signings.
That was followed by the addition of nomadic centre-half Ryan Nolan from Northampton Town.
Murray has also been vocal about bringing in another forward as his 4-1-3-2 formation requires another striker to play alongside Jamie Gullan.
Courier Sport understands Kyle Connellis set to complete a loan move from Kilmarnock where he has six months left on his deal.
Player the manager knows
A 20-year-old striker, Connell was on loan at East Fife last season where he managed nine goals and one assist in 34 appearances.
Before that he worked under Murray at Airdrie, also during a loan spell where he scored six times and managed two assists.
Connell made his debut for Kilmarnock as an 18-year-old in the Scottish Cup and went on to make a brief appearance from the bench in the Premiership.
Ahead of his move to Rugby Park in 2020, Connell spent time in the youth systems at Motherwell and Blackburn.
