Van Tornhout has signed an 18-month contract and joins Kilmarnock from Cypriot side Nea Salamis.
Kilmarnock boss Kenny Shiels insists the striker will not feature in Saturday’s League Cup semi-final clash with rivals Ayr United.
Shiels said: “We’ve signed Dietar, he’s 6ft 2ins, he holds the ball well and will connect the top end of the pitch for us.
“He moves well with a decent understanding of the game. He’s a big lad so he’ll offer us a different style.
“We’ve become a little bit predictable at times so he’ll give us variety in attack.
“He has played for Roda JC and Sparta Rotterdam in Holland and I was in Europe a few weeks ago watching him play in the Cypriot League.
“His club over there have got into financial difficulties and we’ve got him on a very good meal ticket, it’s not expensive for us.
“But I won’t play him on Saturday. If I bring him in it will affect the morale in our team.
“We’ve worked hard to create a spirit and it can have an adverse affect on the team when you add someone.”

The start of the 2017-18 Premier League season is just around the corner and is shaping up to be one of the most competitive yet.
As always it is the so called “big clubs” that have splashed the most cash in the transfer window so far this summer. Manchester United or City? Arsenal or Tottenham? Who are the winners and losers of the transfer window so far?
