Motherwell manager Graham Alexander has been impressed with Darragh O’Connor’s ‘attitude’ after the defender signed for ‘Well following his Leicester City exit.

O’Connor made six appearances for Leicester City in the EFL Trophy over his two seasons with the English Premier club, as well as plenty of experience at youth level. A centre-back, he also featured as a youngster for Shamrock Rovers and at senior level in the Irish First Division with Wexford.

Alexander said of the Leicester City academy graduate: “Darragh is a young centre-half who has been with us for the last couple of weeks. We really like what we’ve seen with his attitude and commitment.

“He’s a young player with a lot of potential, but we also think he’s got the capability to break into our first team and compete with our more senior players. We’re delighted to have him.”
