Ross McCormack has revealed his delight at joining his former club Motherwell on a five-month loan deal from Aston Villa.

The 32-year-old striker has endured a difficult spell having recently been on loan at Central Coast Mariners after a turbulent time at Villa Park.

With a chance to repay a former team, McCormack is looking forward to his move, after international clearance.

He told the club's website: "I am delighted to be back.

"Although I was a youth player at Rangers, got a good education there and played some first team games, I feel like this was the club that helped launch my career and I will be forever grateful for that.

"I've had a frustrating few years and I am desperate to just get back on the pitch again and do what I do.

"I want to put something back into Motherwell for what they did for me all those years ago. My aim is to come in and score goals, help the team and help develop some of the younger talent in the squad."

Motherwell are next in Premierhsip action on 23rd January when they welcome Hibernian to Fir Park.

The hosts are 23/10 to win, 11/5 to draw and 5/4 to lose to the Stags.
