Motherwell have lost goalkeeper Jordan Archer to English Championship side Middlesbrough.
The goalkeeper arrived at Fir Park in the autumn to provide cover for Trevor Carson after the Northern Ireland international picked up a knee injury, rivalling Aaron Chapman between the sticks.
Archer made four appearances while at Fir Park, last appearing in the 0-0 draw against Aberdeen. He now joins Middlesbrough on a deal until the end of the season, replacing Dejan Stojanovic in providing competition for Boro keeper Marcus Bettinelli.
Middlesbrough manager Neil Warnock said: “I’ve looked at Jordan the last few years. Ever since he was at Millwall, he’s a player I’ve liked. Dejan made it clear to me that he wants to go and play to try and get in the Austria team for the Euros and reluctantly I agreed to that.
“I thought why not give Jordan the opportunity to show us what he can do over the next few months and I’m delighted to have him on board.”
Archer started his career at Tottenham before establishing himself as a regular in the English Football League, most notably appearing for Millwall before a departure in 2019. Last term, Archer was with Oxford United and then Fulham.
He now chases promotion from the Championship to the Premier League, Middlesbrough currently sat seventh, one place outside a promotion play-off spot.
