Devante Cole targeted for Motherwell return

Motherwell are keen to bring Devante Cole back to the club before the close of the window.

The striker had a successful loan spell at Fir Park last season and Well boss Stephen Robinson is keen to work with him again.

Cole – the son of former England and Manchester United star Andy – was on loan from Wigan last season but terminated that deal last January for a permanent move to Doncaster Rovers.

The 25-year-old isn’t getting the game time he hoped at Rovers and could now return north if a deal can be done.

Robinson is also keen to bring in another goalkeeper to cover for Trevor Carson.

Scott Fox came in but he has suffered a serious knee injury and Robinson feels he needs more cover between the sticks.

Motherwell could let several of their younger players out on loan to free up additional wages.

Young centre half Yusuf Mohamed, who was wanted by Peterhead, now looks set to move to Airdrie on loan.
