Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson is pleased to have Devante Cole to call upon again after the striker signed a deal until the end of the season.

Cole was on loan at Motherwell from Wigan at the start of last term, where the Steelmen hit a run of form that helped propel them into third place and European football.

He returned to Wigan in January of this year before completing a permanent move away from the Latics, joining Doncaster Rovers. Things haven’t worked out for him there though and now he’s back at Fir Park.

It comes after Motherwell let an attacking option go to a Premiership rival, Ross County snapping up Jermaine Hylton after 43 appearances in claret and amber.

Previously, Cole made 21 Well appearances with four goals and assists, featuring on the flank and through the middle. Manager Robinson says Motherwell know what to expect from the Manchester City academy graduate that bolsters his forward line.

“Obviously we have worked with Devante before, so we know what are getting from him,” said Robinson.

“He give us options all across the forward line and adds pace.

“He has proven he can score goals coming in from the wider positions.

“He will add real competition to the front line.”
