MOTHERWELL have signed Nottingham Forest attacker Gboly Ariyibi on loan until the end of the season.

The United States under-23 international is the second arrival at Fir Park in this window following the capture of Ross McCormack. The new signings were teammates previously at Leeds United.

Ariyibi has yet to make a senior appearance for Forest, but has clocked up over 40 appearances in loan spells at Northampton and MK Dons.

“I am delighted to join and I can’t wait to get started,” Ariyibi told the club website.

“I’ve heard a lot of good things about the club and the league and as soon as I spoke with the manager, I knew this is where I wanted to come.”

Motherwell boss Robinson was delighted to get his man, and he is happy with how the transfer window has kicked off.

“We’ve been tracking the player for quite some time and I am really pleased to get this agreed and over the line,” Robinson said.

“He’s a fast-footed, speedy forward player who can plays on either flank or through the middle. He fits the type of profile we were looking for and will hopefully provide a different dimension in the forward areas.

“Going into the window, we were keen to boost our attacking options and with Ross and Gboly, we’ve made a good start.”

Meanwhile, Motherwell are not believed to be interested in bringing Calvin Miller to the club despite being linked with a loan move for the Celtic youngster.
