Jake Hastie will spend the first half of the 2018/19 season on loan with Alloa Athletic.
The young forward will link up with the Ladbrokes Championship side until January, as he continues his development.
The 19-year-old, who has played for Motherwell’s first team on three occasions, spent last campaign on loan at Airdrieonians.
Also a member of Stephen Craigan’s Under 20s squad, Hastie made 32 appearances for the Diamonds, scoring three goals.
“This is another good opportunity for Jake to get games under his belt,” manager Stephen Robinson said of the move.
“Having spent time with us in Ireland in pre season and impressed, it’s important he gets playing time.
“It’s also a new challenge for him stepping up to a higher division. We will continue to monitor his progress and hope Jake performs well in the Championship.”
