Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson has expressed his delight after securing Mikael Ndjoli on a loan deal from Bournemouth.

The attacker can play anywhere across the forward line. He’ll fill the void Devante Cole has left upon his return to Wigan until the end of the season.

It’s not his first loan spell in Scotland. Last season, Ndjoli spent some time away from the Cherries at Kilmarnock. Whilst at Rugby Park, he scored five times in 31 apperances.

Most recently he’s been out on loan at Gillingham, where has featured 17 times with three strikes. Motherwell will become the attacker’s latest loan club and adds options to a Well frontline in need of strong options.

He could make his debut this weekend when Motherwell take on Dundee in the Scottish Cup. Robinson suffered defeat to Championship opposition at this round of the competition last year and will want to avoid similar heartbreak.

Speaking on the Well’s website, the Northern Irishman has expressed how pleased he is to get this deal over the line.

“Mikael is quick, strong and gives us an option all across the forward line,” Robinson said. “He will immediately add competition for places.

“He’s already had experience of the Scottish league, which will be of benefit to us. Also, despite his age, he’s already been out on loan twice and got playing time. He’s already shown us the enthusiasm he has for this move since arriving on Monday.”
