Motherwell have signed QPR goalkeeper Liam Kelly on a three-year deal in an ambitious transfer for the cinch Premiership club.

Kelly won the club’s Players’ Player of the Season for 2020/21 after arriving on loan from QPR in January. He was a key factor in Motherwell retaining their Premiership status last season and work has been going on tirelessly behind the scenes to bring Kelly back to Fir Park for the 2021/22 season. Kelly takes Motherwell’s number one spot.

There was interest elsewhere, but Motherwell have signed Kelly on a permanent long-term deal. Manager Graham Alexander said: “It’s brilliant to have Liam back with us and even better that he’s now our player. It’s been a long process but the board have been great with their patience and backing as we worked to get this deal done.

“We all saw Liam’s qualities first-hand last season, and I know how much he enjoyed his time with us previously. His ability, professionalism and drive will improve us again. Everyone is delighted to see him back in a Motherwell shirt.”
