Darryl James Westlake (born 1 March 1991) is a footballer who plays as a defender for Kilmarnock. Born in Sutton Coldfield, England, he began his career with Walsall where he spent three seasons before moving to Sheffield United, and also spent time on loan at Mansfield Town in 2014.

Club career[edit]

Walsall[edit]

Westlake made his Walsall début on 15 August 2009 in the Football League One clash with Southend United at the Bescot Stadium, which ended in a 2–2 draw. He was seen as a future prospect due to his consistent performances at such a young age, finishing the season with the Young Player of the Year Award and a new 2-year contract in May 2010.[2][3]

Sheffield United[edit]

On 20 July 2012, Westlake joined Sheffield United in July 2012, signing a two year contract, with an option for a third year.[4] Following his move to Sheffield United, the club have to pay Walsall an undisclosed compensation package because in England, when a player under the age of 23 leaves a club at the end of his contract, his new club must pay a fee to his old club as compensation for having trained him up and Westlake was under 23 when he left Walsall.[5] Westlake made his debut for the Blades in September 2012, playing in central midfield in a 1–1 home draw against Bury.

On 28 November 2013 Westlake joined Mansfield Town on loan until 5 January 2014,[6] a deal that was later extended until the end of the season.[7] Westlake played regularly for the Stags and returned to Bramall Lane the following summer having played 25 games.[8] Westlake was released by Sheffield United on 16 May 2014.[9]

Kilmarnock[edit]

On 9 September 2014, Westlake signed for Scottish Premiership club Kilmarnock on a one-year contract with the option of an extra year.[10] Westlake made his league debut for the club, playing as a left back position, in a 3-0 win over Partick Thistle on 27 September 2014.[11]
