TV: Higginbotham joins on loan
Motherwell have taken Huddersfield Town forward Kallum Higginbotham on loan until the end of the season.
The 23-year old will be a familiar face to Scottish football fans having spent two years at Falkirk, culminating in a memorable Man of the Match performance against Celtic at Hampden in the Semi Final of the SFL Cup, winning him a move to his current club last January.
Shortly after his arrival, The Terriers parted company with boss Lee Clark and quickly replaced him with Simon Grayson. Despite making an encouraging start, the Salford-born striker found himself out the team and out on loan at Championship side Barnsley.
He has spent the first half of the 2012/13 campaign on loan again, this time at League One outfit Carlisle Utd which came to an end last month.
Subject to completing registration formalities, he will spend the remainder of the season at Fir Park, working to push the Steelmen towards the top-six and the battle for a return to European football.
Speaking exclusively to MFC TV, the Englishman said: “I am really pleased and excited to be here and I want to thank the gaffer (Stuart McCall) and all the players for making me feel so welcome.
“Things haven’t quite worked out as well as I would have liked at Huddersfield but with eighteen months left on my deal there, this is a great opportunity to show what I can do at a great club in a strong, competitive league.
“My aim is to work my way into the first-team and hopefully help Motherwell finish as high up the table as possible.”
