    Casper Sloth joins Motherwell

    Casper Sloth joins Motherwell

    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.

    • Ross McCormack (Aston Villa)
    • Conor Sammon (Heart of Midlothian)

    Craig Tanner has been offered a short-term deal to help ensure he regains full fitness, following a long-term knee injury that has sidelined him since March 2018.

    When Craig is fit to rejoin training, he will be assessed by the coaching staff with a view to winning an extended contract.

    The following players have already signed pre-contract agreements and will join the club for pre-season training in June.

    • Declan Gallagher
    • Liam Polworth
    • Jake Carroll
    • Casper Sloth

    “I would like to record my thanks to every player who will leave us in the next few weeks,” ‘Well boss Stephen Robinson said.

    “Modern football is such that there is now likely to be a significant turnover of players at most clubs each year.

    “We’ve already extended the contracts of numerous players and have confirmed three new faces already by this point.

    “We remain committed to keeping at least some of the lads who are currently out of contract or been with us on loan, and those discussions will continue over the summer break.

    “We will also look to strengthen the squad and the starting team with more new faces ahead of pre-season training starting on 19 June.”

    Motherwell Football Club would like to sincerely thank every player who is leaving Fir Park for the last time and wish them every success in their future careers.

    What if we can inspire the next generation?

    Family.

    We want to make sure the love of our club continues to pass down the generations. So what if you could inspire that next generation to carry on your passion, and we can help you do it?

    We all started somewhere with Motherwell. Our parents, our relatives, our friends. Someone was responsible for us coming to our first game at Fir Park, and responsible for getting us hooked on a lifetime in claret and amber.

    We want to make sure the love of our club continues to pass down the generations. So what if you could inspire that next generation to carry on your passion, and we can help you do it?

    Everyone who buys an adult or over 60s season ticket can claim a free season ticket for a child aged 15 or under. Completely free of charge, sat next to you in the stands.

    Better still, if you sit in our Cooper Stand, you can get two free kids tickets. If you’ve got more kids you want to take along, don’t worry, it’s just £20 for each extra kids season ticket.

    They’ll even get their own season card with their name on it, giving them something to cherish as their own token of their support of the team.

    Over a third of our season ticket holders last campaign came from that next generation. All brought to our club to live through the rollercoaster that is supporting our club.

    But we can see they are hooked. So if you’re already sharing Motherwell with the young ones in your family, thank you. If you aren’t yet, what if this is the year you can get them here and get them to catch the bug?

    As a club, we’re always asking ourselves if we can make our home more entertaining for young ones. We’ve got our Cooper Suite, open before every game from 11am with food, drinks, face painting, activities, visits from players and our mascot Steelman. And we’ll spend the summer asking you, our supporters, how we can make it even better.

    Our season ticket prices

    We’re asking as many as you as possible to get in before Friday, 31 May and enjoy our discounted Early Bird pricing on all season tickets.
