Motherwell star Bevis Mugabi can see himself setting roots down in Lanarkshire as he eyes an extension to his Steelmen contract, admitting that he loves the club and the people at Fir Park.

The Ugandan is out of contract in the summer after initially joining Motherwell in September 2019 then extending his deal by a year in April, and the Fir Park stopper was full of praise for the community spirit around Graham Alexander’s side.

“I’m under contract until next summer,” Mugabi said [Lanarkshire Live]. “It’s a place I could see myself settling down for sure. The fans have welcomed me and since the manager came in, I’ve been playing consistently as well.

“I feel I have been playing well for him. So all I can do is focus on my performances and if they want to keep me, I’m here. Hopefully things are going to work out in the near future.

“I feel like the club does an amazing job of including the community and being supportive of the environment around us.

“With my previous club Yeovil, I feel it was similar to Motherwell. It was a family club, they tried to include the community in things. It’s important, I feel, to have everything connected and everyone pushing in the same direction.

“I love Motherwell. I love the club, I love the people here. I get along with everybody here to be honest. It would be a good place to settle down for sure.”
