Motherwell have moved to secure Charles Dunne on an extended contract as his deal came to a close at Fir Park.

The defender has been battling injury since August 2019 and hasn’t featured since then. But the Well have handed him an extended deal in the hope that he can return to fitness before the end of the season.

Having linked up with the Fir Park side in 2017, the defender has became a popular figure at the club, making 77 appearances in claret and amber so far including his part in the run to two cup finals.

Dunne is back in light training and will continue rehabilitation as the Well hope for his return to action. It’s their second move on Deadline Day after penning Robbie Crawford on loan until the end of the season following his loan from Livingston.

The club are still expected to try and complete one or two more deals following this while news on Stephen O’Donnell’s contract is expected. Jamie Semple has also been recalled from his loan at Cove Rangers.
