Northampton Town striker Harry Smith has joined Motherwell on loan until the end of the season.

The 25-year-old becomes the club's third signing of the January window following the arrivals of goalkeeper Liam Kelly and striker Steven Lawless.

He goes straight into the squad for Saturday's trip to Aberdeen, subject to international clearance, and his arrival comes hot on the heels of the club's announcement that Jake Carroll has signed a contract extension at the club.

Smith told Motherwell's club website: “I’m delighted to make the move.

“I’ve heard a lot about Motherwell and Scottish football already, and I can’t wait to get started.”

“He comes here as a motivated player who can enhance our attacking options.

"We look forward to working with him.”

Smith has also had spells with Stockport County, Swindon Town and Millwall.
