A report has linked Motherwell with a move for former star and current Rangers forward Jamie Murphy.

The attacker has been struggling with injuries over the past couple of seasons and now his chances at Ibrox look slim. He’s one of five players listed in a recent report that suggest some Rangers men could leave the club in January (Daily Record).

A potential destination for Murphy is Fir Park according to the report. It’s a name Well fans know very well.

Reported Stoke interest in Murphy could cause problems for Motherwell

Having just returned from a knee injury, the 30-year-old is in need of minutes. Either permanent or loan deals will be considered by Rangers for Murphy. If the Well do want him, it’ll have to be a loan.


Motherwell simply don’t have the funds to buy Murphy, as the Gers will likely demand six figures for him. If they can broker a good deal though, Stephen Robinson’s men could shoulder some of his wages.

Stoke are another team reportedly interested though and that will likely cause problems if the two go head to head for him. The Potters can blow Motherwell out the water with any offer they submit, either loan or permanent. That will put them in the driving seat for his signature.

Murphy is highly thought of around Fir Park. He is the club’s top scorer in European competitions and made 212 apperances for the Well between 2006-2013, having graduated from the club’s academy.
