Motherwell have snapped up goalkeeper Jordan Archer following his exit from Fulham in the summer.

The one-cap Scotland international has joined Stephen Robinson’s side on a short-term deal until January. This is to help cover the loss of first-choice keeper Trevor Carson, who has been ruled out until 2021 with a knee injury.

Archer was last at Fulham, where he played as back-up before leaving Craven Cottage in the summer. Having not found a club following this spell, Well boss Robinson has moved to bring him to Fir Park.

 

After starting his career at Tottenham, Archer has enjoyed an impressive career in the EFL. He is strongly associated with Millwall, who he made 166 appearances for during his time at the Den.

He left Millwall at the end of the 2018/19 season, joining Oxford United on a short-term deal before securing a move to Fulham as they won promotion back to the Premier League. The 26-year-old had also been on trial at Bournemouth last month, playing in a friendly against West Ham.

Now Archer will compete with Aaron Chapman to become the Well’s number one with Carson on the sidelines.
