Motherwell have signed striker Tony Watt on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

Watt has been a free agent since leaving CSKA Sofia in January and has been training with the Fir Park side.

He could now be in the squad for Saturday’s Scottish Cup tie against St Mirren if international clearance is received in time from the Bulgarian FA.

“Tony is a player who maybe has a little bit of a point to prove,” manager Stephen Robinson told the club’s official website.

“We lost James Scott at the last second of the window. So being able to bring a player of Tony’s experience in on a short-term deal is a big boost for us.

“He will bring us another option in attack as we look to secure a top six place and push on.”
