Motherwell have signed winger Justin Amaluzor as the Fir Park club target Rangers starlet Josh McPake.

24-year-old Amaluzor joins on a one-year deal from National League South club Maidstone United, where he featured 12 times in the abandoned 2020/21 season. Rangers wideman McPake is also a target as heads into the final year of his Ibrox contract, spending last season away from Steven Gerrard’s side at Morton and Harrogate Town (PA).

Rangers kid McPake has pondered his long-term future but may move to Motherwell on a season-long loan deal. Motherwell signed Ibrox teammate and fellow winger Jake Hastie on a season-long loan last term. There are EFL clubs interested in McPake too.

Amaluzor meanwhile is Motherwell’s second summer signing after a successful trial period with the club earlier this year. Manager Graham Alexander said: “Justin came in to train with us last season and immediately impressed us all with his enthusiasm and attacking ability.

“He’s hungry to succeed and we’re delighted to bring him in. We’re sure he’ll take this opportunity and be a valuable asset to our team.”
