Motherwell assistant manager Kenny Black has denied the club have signed Notts County striker Anthony Dwyer.

On Monday Dwyer tweeted ‘Never thought I’d Be Playing My Football in Scotland!! Wish Me Luck Motherwell F.C’

However Black said: “If he’s been training or signed here then he’s done it on his own because we have no knowledge of him.

“There are a couple of boys in training with the under-20s, but no one of that name.

“Since we have come back from Iceland there has been no business done.”

’Well have been linked with a loan deal for Derby defender Mark O’Brien and Black admits at least they’re aware of the Irishman.

He said: “We’ve made an inquiry, but no more than that, there has been nothing concrete.

“However, we’re at least aware of O’Brien unlike the other boy who’s way off our radar.”

Black admits the loss to Stjarnan in the Europea League qualifer was harder to take than previous Euro exits.

He said: “Stjarnan were a decent side, but certainly not of the quality of a Kuban Krasnodar or Levante.

“To be two up at home, and then ahead twice over there and not to see it out was particularly disappointing, but now we need to pull ourselves together for the big kick-off on August 9.”
