Motherwell winger Chris Cadden has been added to Alex McLeish's Scotland squad for the end-of-season friendlies with Peru and Mexico.

The 21-year-old Fir Park youngster has been called up for the tour of Latin America following Wednesday's withdrawals of Matt Ritchie and Ryan Fraser.

McLeish's squad face Peru in Lima on May 29 before travelling to Mexico City for the June 2 clash with the Mexicans.

Cadden - who has seven Under-21 caps - follows Hearts defender John Souttar and St Mirren ace Lewis Morgan into the full squad after impressing for Scot Gemmill's youth team.

He has been an impressive performer for Stephen Robinson's Well side and will hope to cap off another fine season by leading the Lanarkshire club to William Hill Scottish Cup glory in Saturday's final with Celtic.

His club side were the first to congratulate the attacker, who has made 113 appearances for the Steelmen since making his debut in 2014, as he became the first Motherwell player to receive an Scotland call-up since Steven Hammell in 2013.

Well chiefs said in a statement: "Everyone at Motherwell FC is delighted for Chris and look forward to seeing him in action for Scotland."

Ritchie, Fraser and Wolves defender Barry Douglas were all named in McLeish's original 24-man squad but have since withdrawn through injury.

Souttar may also have to miss the trip with a hamstring injury, while Celtic stars Craig Gordon, Kieran Tierney, Callum McGregor, James Forrest and Leigh Griffiths are among a number of regulars who have been left out.

The only other additional call-up so far has been Kilmarnock right-back Stephen O'Donnell.
