Henri joins the Mighty 'Well

26 July 2013 09:40
Stuart McCall has secured a striker on a loan deal ahead of the Europa League cut off date. Henri Anier, the 22 year old Estonian who has been on a pre-season trial at Fir Park joins up for six months.

Henri is contracted to Viking Stavanger although his recent playing days have been on loan to another Norwegian club, Fredrikstad.  He has been a regular in the Estonian youth squads and now has seven full caps.

He impressed in Motherwell's recent friendly against Newcastle at Fir Park, scored in Morecambe  and convinced the manager that he should be our eighth capture ahead of the 2013/14 campaign.  He follows Paul Lawson, Iain Vigurs, John Sutton, Fraser Kerr, Gunnar Nielsen, Stephen McManus and James McFadden in putting pen to paper.

It cannot be coincidence that Anier has the same agent as Ojamaa and their recommendation will have carried some weight.  The new man is 6 feet tall and different in style to Henrik.  Whether  he’ll be available for tonight's  game against Nottingham Forest remains to be seen but it looks like the rebuilt squad is almost complete.

Let the football begin!

Have your say on the messageboard.
