Motherwell have reportedly agreed a three-year deal with Irish midfielder Ross Tierney ahead of his contract with Bohemians expiring at the end of the year.
According to RTÉ Sport, Graham Alexander’s side will bring Tierney across the water when the January transfer window opens as the Steelmen look to bolster their squad for the second half of the season.
Tierney has represented Ireland at under-21 level this year and won plaudits for his performances in the Europa Conference League before rejecting the offer of a new deal with Bohemians.
The midfielder scored once in six appearances in Europe this season for Bohs and Motherwell will be hoping he can have a similar sort of impact to countryman Jamie McGrath at St Mirren.
Motherwell currently sit sixth in the Premiership table and will be looking to close the gap to the sides above them this weekend when they travel to Tannadice to take on Dundee United.
The Steelmen lost 2-0 to Celtic last weekend at Fir Park but have impressed this term, winning four of their nine league games so far.
So far this season, the midfielder has scored four times and contributed 14 assists in 29 league appearances, with a further goal in the Conference League, as he caught the attention of Alexander and his staff.
Tierney will be competing with the likes of Sean Goss and Callum Slattery for a place in the side at Motherwell and it will be interesting to see how he fares at Fir Park.
