Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson has revealed that the Steelmen are “quite close” to bringing a striker in ahead of the January transfer window opening on Wednesday.

The Fir Park gaffer admitted that he doesn’t have “masses of money to spend” but is confident he is near to adding a new face to his squad soon.

Robinson also has a number of injured players to return to action soon but confessed that bringing in a striker is a priority – and one he is near to fulfilling.

“We are down the road already with trying to get somebody in,” Robinson said.

“We don’t have masses of money to spend and buy three or four players. We still have players to come back in the squad – Charles Dunne, David Turnbull, Christian Ilic, Christy Manzinga, who has been on and off injured.

“But we have to try and bring a striker in and we are quite close to doing that.”

It’ll be interesting to see who ‘Well bring in and it certainly sounds as though it’ll be a permanent signing rather than a loan deal – although that could very well change.

With the winter break getting started after the full-time whistle tomorrow, Motherwell fans will need to be patient to see their new man in action – whoever he is.
