Eddie Nolan has signed for Motherwell on loan until the end of the season as the former Preston North End and Sheffield Wednesday man arrives in Lanarkshire.

The 32-year-old, who has three caps for his country, hasn’t featured in the league this season for Crewe Alexandra. Nolan has also represented Scunthorpe United, Preston, York City, Sheffield Wednesday, Hartlepool United, Blackpool and Stockport County, having started out at Blackburn Rovers.

Motherwell made two fresh moves on Deadline Day, signing Nolan on loan alongside Hearts winger Jordan Roberts, also on loan. The club have extended the contracts of Robbie Crawford, Charles Dunne and Stephen O’Donnell until the end of the season too.

Manager Graham Alexander said of his Irish defender: “Eddie is a vastly experienced defender and we’re glad to have him. I’ve faced him many times with my previous teams and know what he will bring. He can slot in anywhere across the back four, giving us good competition across all the defensive line.”
