Former Motherwell captain Peter Hartley has completed a move to Indian Super League side Jamshedpur FC.

The 32-year-old has signed with fellow former Well man Owen Coyle’s side for the 2020/21 season. Hartley left Fir Park at the end of last season following a successful three year stint in North Lanarkshire.

After taking over as captain, the centre-back made 65 appearances overall in claret and amber, scoring eight goals with five assists from defence. He helped guide the Steelmen to a third-place finish and spot in the Europa League last term.

Hartley parted ways with Motherwell in the summer and has now penned a deal with Jamshedpur.

 

He is one of a host of former Fir Park players to move to the Indian Super League in recent years, Carl McHugh, Stephen Pearson, Kallum Higginbotham and new manager Coyle some of the ex-Steelmen to have had Indian spells.
