Motherwell’s frontline is taking shape with David Clarkson returning, joined by Wes Fletcher from York City and Louis Moult from Wrexham.

Clarkson said: “It’s good to be back. When I was here before I had great time. If you’ve been at a club with lots of happy memories then when they come calling again it is an easy decision to make.

“The team showed towards the end of the season how they can play and everyone wants to ensure we are ready for the fight again.”

Fletcher says this is the biggest move of his career.

He said: “I’m delighted to be here. It’s good to get back into the swing of things after being out for a while.

“I think a lot of players come up here and don’t realise how good the standard is, but I know I’ll need to up my game

“It’s a big step up for me, by far the best move I’ve had, but if I work hard I’m confident I can become a better player and score goals.”

Moult aims to keep up his remarkable to scoring rate.

He said: “In two seasons I’ve scored 40 goals and I’m going to try and make that 60 in three, or even more if I can.”

Louis Laing, who was on-loan at ’Well last season, has also signed.

He said: “I’ve got a bit of security for the next two years at a fantastic club with fantastic fans and a fantastic manager.

“I didn’t have a great start last season, getting sent off in the first game, but after that I hit the ground running and it was a really enjoyable experience. I’m delighted to be back.”

Sheffield United goalkeeper George Long is expected to arrive for a second loan spell.
