Motherwell recently announced that midfielder Allan Campbell has signed a contract extension.

It’s a deal that will keep him at Fir Park until 2021. The 21-year-old has played 86 times for the Well since breaking into the first-team.

He’s been a mainstay for a few seasons now and he keeps on getting better and better. Every season Campbell seems to develop in maturity and ability out on the park.

Campbell more than deserves his new Well deal.

Could Campbell be a future Motherwell captain?

He can win the ball back off most opponents with ease. Not only that, but once he regains possession, the 21-year-old isn’t half bad at driving the ball forward.

Campbell’s work allows the more attacking players to express themselves further up the park. They don’t need to worry as much about their defensive duties as Campbell does the job of two men.

David Turnbull benefitted massively from Campbell’s contributions last term. Turnbull wouldn’t have registered as many goals or assists without his youth academy partner.

Campbell doesn’t seem to get tired over 90 minutes. He aims to leave everything on the park for the Fir Park cause.

If Robinson can retain him beyond 2021, Campbell will be named Well captain in the coming years. He’s a role model for all youngsters breaking into the senior setup, plus he’s a handy battler in the engine room too.

Motherwell will be delighted to get this deal over the line. Campbell’s one of their biggest assets who’ll be sold for a seven figure fee when the time comes for him to leave Fir Park.

Hopefully that’s in the distant future though. He may well be Motherwell captain should he stick around for long enough.
