Well abandon Mamam signing plan

Motherwell have dropped their interest in trialist Togo midfielder Souleymane Mamam as manager Mark McGhee's priority is to sign a defender.

"We think he is a very good player and I would recommend him to anybody," McGhee said of the former Man Utd player who has been with Royal Antwerp.

"But we just can't afford another midfield player.

"We are still hoping to bring in a defender before the closure of the transfer window."

An unnamed foreign trialist arrived at Fir Park on Friday.

"We have one or two on trial next week and we're still talking to clubs about others," said McGhee.

"I expect that we will sign someone.

"The absolute last resort is we'll sign a younger lad on loan just to give us cover at the back, but obviously we would like to bring in someone who can put pressure on the two currently in the team."
