Ross County have signed Jordan White on a permanent deal as his Motherwell spell comes to an end.

The striker signed for the Steelmen in the summer as he stepped up to the Premiership after a spell at Championship side Inverness. During his first stint in the Highlands, he scored 26 goals in 89 appearances.

Since that move, he has been unable to score in his 20 claret and amber appearances, most of which have come from the bench. John Hughes now makes him his next signing since arriving in Dingwall.

White is Ross County’s fifth incoming of the window, following the captures of Tony Andreu, Mohamed Maouche, Leo Hjelde and Joe Hilton. The Staggies boss is pleased to see the striker make his Highland return.

He said: “Jordan comes to us with good experience and hunger. At 28 he will be one of the more experienced players in the group and can have a big part to play between now and the end of the season.

“If you look at his career, he has scored goals but has also been a focal point for the teams he has played with and somebody that can offer something different to us.”

White’s deal has been in the pipeline for over a week now but is now confirmed following the conclusion of Ross County v Motherwell in Dingwall on Wednesday night. The striker wasn’t used by either side as the Steelmen won 2-1.

Goals from Devante Cole and Bevis Mugabi have sent County back into the relegation zone and allow Graham Alexander’s side to climb out of it.
