Casper Sloth is the latest addition to the Motherwell squad for the forthcoming 2019/20 campaign.
The Danish international central midfielder will move to Fir Park on a two-year deal, when his contract at Silkeborg comes to an end in late June.
The 27-year-old has eight caps for his country and has made almost 200 appearances at club level.
“Casper has undoubted technical ability and arrives at the club with an impressive CV,” manager Stephen Robinson said of his fourth summer signing.
“He was at one point considered one of the real emerging talents in Danish football, but perhaps will have been frustrated with how his career has gone over the last few years.
“We want to give him the platform and help him recapture his best form. Motherwell is a club which prides itself on getting people back on the right path, and that’s very much our aim with Casper.
“He has been over to train with us and impressed us not only with his ability on the park, but his desire, his hunger to be here and with a bit of a point to prove.
“He’s a very talented, technical footballer and I look forward to working with him, making him even better and watching him shine again.
”We are continuing to work on transfer targets. Our priorities now lie in bringing in forwards.”
Sloth joins Liam Polworth, Declan Gallagher and Jake Carroll in committing to join Motherwell for the new season.
“I am very happy to be coming to play for Motherwell,” said the player on signing on at the club.
“I have heard a lot about the club and Scottish football. It is the perfect place for me to come to play.
“My immediate focus will be on establishing myself in the team and bringing my experience to help the club push higher.”
He played youth football at local side Brabrand IF but started his professional career at AGF Aarhus. He made his debut in the Danish Superliga aged just 17 and was hailed as one of the country’s brightest prospects.
It was around that time he also made his senior international debut for the Danes, starting against Turkey in Istanbul in November 2012. Casper would go on to make a further seven appearances for De rød-hvide, including an impressive showing against England at Wembley in March 2014.
After five years and over 150 games with Aarhus, he won a big money moved to English Championship side Leeds United in April 2013, making his league debut against Bolton shortly after.
He would only turn out 14 times for the Whites in a two-year period where the club had six different managers. In July 2016, an undisclosed fee would take him back to his homeland and Aalborg BK.
He spent a year at AaB before moving to his current club, Silkeborg, where he has played for the last two seasons.
