Motherwell have signed French midfielder Hermann Mboa Mekongo after a successful trial.

But the club stress that the 18-year-old, previously of Racing Club de France, is initially destined for the club's under-19 squad.

Head of youth development Gordon Young said: "We were given the opportunity to have a look at Hermann and he has held his own.

"Because of his background, we have registered him as an amateur player."

Paris-born Mekongo has also spent time with Ligue 1 club Valenciennes and Clairefontaine.

Former Bradford City winger Omar Daley has also been on trial at Fir Park as Motherwell manager Stuart McCall looks to strengthen his first team.
