MOTHERWELL have completed the signing of central midfielder Lee Lucas until January.

The Wales Under-21 international was on trial at Fir Park throughout the summer and has earned a short-term contract after impressing manager Mark McGhee.

The Swansea City youth product has already made an appearance for the Steelmen this season, starting in the 3-1 win against Annan Athletic in the Betfred Cup. 

McGhee said: "I’m delighted that we’re able to sign Lee – he’ll be a valuable addition to our squad.

"We look forward to continuing to work with Lee for the duration of his contract and hopefully beyond.

“As we’ve seen in recent weeks, injuries can hit at any point and Lee adds depth to the squad as well as bringing real ability and a great option. He is a technical midfielder, a good passer; a little different to what we have.”

Lucas was happy to finally pen a contract after spending several months with the club.

He said: “I’m delighted – I’ve been here a while now so it’s nice to get it sorted now and just concentrate on my football, help out the team and I just can’t wait to get involved.”

"It’s been great here so far, the boys have been brilliant from day one and they helped me settle in straight away.

“Now that the contract is all sorted and done, I can just focus on my football and enjoy my time here even more.”
