Motherwell have signed Mich'el Parker on a six-month contract after he impressed on trial.
The 22-year-old hasn't been with a club since leaving West Ham United last year and he's yet to make his senior professional debut.
Parker, a defensive midfielder, came through the youth ranks at Arsenal before joining Liverpool.
Motherwell boss Graham Alexander said: “Mich’el has been training with us for a while now and shown a gradual improvement.
“He’s a young player who has been at Liverpool and West Ham but lost his way a little.
“He’s now got an opportunity here to show he can build a successful football career.
“He has some work to do but he has the ability and there’s a will from him to take this chance. We look forward to helping him achieve that.”
Parker is available for Mothherwell for their Premier Sports Cup clash against Queen of the South this afternoon.
