Louis Moult hint as Graham Alexander doesn’t rule out Motherwell move for departing Preston striker

Motherwell manager Graham Alexander isn’t ruling out a potential move for departing Preston North End striker and club hero Louis Moult.

The striker scored 49 goals in 98 appearances for Motherwell during an outstanding stint between June 2015 and December 2017. It earned him the admiration of the entire ‘Well fanbase as he became one of the biggest fan favourites in recent times, moving to Preston North End as he got his big break.

He hasn’t played since August 2019 after a horror knee injury. Moult will leave Preston at the end of his contract and Alexander isn’t ruling out a move: “Always interested in good players, regardless of whether they have a good history with our club or not.

“I know of Louis’ abilities. I know he has had a tough time over the last couple of seasons with injury and so forth, but once we get beyond Sunday we will be really getting down to the business of trying to improve our team. Any good player that’s available is under consideration for us.

“I don’t think it’s right that I talk about any individuals, whether attached or unattached because there is a lot of time between identifying someone and actually bringing them in or having the opportunity to do that. But we are interested in every good player that’s out there that can help us win games.”
