Motherwell are in talks to sign former Scotland international Robert Snodgrass.

The 34-year-old has been without a club since leaving Luton Town at the end of last season and Steven Hammell is now keen to bring him to Fir Park.

The new Motherwell manager is keen to add experience to his squad and Snodgrass fits the bill.

Snodgrass started his career with Livingston as a teenager but left to join Leeds United at 21 and has been based in England ever since with spells at a host of clubs including Norwich City, West Ham United and Aston Villa.

He also scored seven goals in 28 Scotland caps before retiring from international football in 2019.

Motherwell have won two and lost one since Hammell replaced former manager Graham Alexander following their defeat to Sligo Rovers in early European qualifiers.

They recorded a 3-2 victory over Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Saturday and currently sit in fourth position after the first three games of the league season.

If Snodgrass makes the move to Lanarkshire he will be following in the footsteps of former international team mates Steven Fletcher and David Marshall who also returned to Scotland in the summer to sign for Dundee United and Hibernian.

On Wednesday, Motherwell confirmed the loan signing of Stuart McKinstry from Leeds United.
