The extensions sees that Findlay will stay with Killie working under former Newcastle gaffer Steve Clarke until June this year.
The young defender has impressed in the Scottish Premiership this season, and scored his first goal against St Johnstone in December.

Football Insider verdict:
Stuart Findlay has been a mainstay in the Kilmarnock team since joining back in 2017, and is enjoying relative success during his second spell at the club. The extra six months will enable the young Scot to get some more crucial first team football under his belt, an opportunity that is not yet available at his parent club Newcastle. Findlay has played for the Magpies, featuring in the 3-1 win over Birmingham in the FA Cup. This extended loan spell is exactly what is needed for the 22-year-old.
