Motherwell FC is today delighted to announce the signing of Andy Rose from Coventry City on an initial one-year deal.
The 27-year-old is Stephen Robinson’s fifth arrival of the summer transfer window as the Northern Irishman builds his squad for the 2017/18 campaign.
The Australian midfielder, who spent three seasons in the MLS with the Seattle Sounders before moving to Coventry last summer, will wear the number 15 jersey for the Steelmen.
The midfielder, who stands at 6ft 3in, follows new signing Gaël Bigirimana from the English League One side.
Speaking exclusively to MFC TV, Rose said: “I can’t wait to get going now, it’s been going on for a few weeks but I’m delighted to get it over the line and I’m looking forward to working with Stephen Robinson.”
He added: “The vision he set out was very exciting, with a great group of guys and a good family club but with great ambition.
