Alex Fisher has left Motherwell Football Club to join Yeovil Town on a permanent deal.
The English striker, who joined in the summer from Inverness CT, will go straight into the League Two side’s squad for the FA Cup tie with Manchester United on tonight.
Fisher made 19 appearances for the Steelmen and was part of the squad who made it to this season’s Betfred Cup final. However, he has found regular football difficult to come by.
“I just want to say thanks to everyone at Motherwell for making me feel so welcome,” the 27-year-old said of his departure.

“I leave with a heavy heart but also relishing the opportunity to play in England again, and potentially make my debut against Manchester United.
“Thanks to everyone involved with Motherwell. I wish you all the very best for the future.”
Manager Stephen Robinson said of the player’s departure: “We wish Alex all the best at Yeovil.
“He was someone we signed based on his performances in the Scottish Premiership last season, but unfortunately it hasn’t happened for him here due to the form of others.
“That can happen sometimes in football. Sometimes things don’t just work for boys at certain clubs.
“This move will give Alex the chance of a fresh start. Around this club, he has been the model professional and his attitude is first class.
“We wish him well for the future. We will now look to replace him before the window closes.”
