Motherwell sign Grenada full-back Straker on loan till end of season
MOTHERWELL have signed York leftback Anthony Straker on loan until the end of the season.
The 26-year-old Grenada international comes in as the club’s other left-backs, Steven Hammell and Zaine Francis-Angol, recover from groin surgery that will likely keep them out until March.
The former Crystal Palace, Aldershot and Southend player fell out of favour at York after Russ Wilcox replaced Nigel Worthington and he has arrived at Motherwell keen for first-team football.
Motherwell boss Ian Baraclough told the club’s official website: “Anthony is someone whom I have known for some time now and I am delighted to get him on board.
“He is versatile enough to play either at left-back or pushed on at left midfield. He is full of energy, has got pace and a lot of experience being involved in promotion-winning teams down south as well as playing international football.
“Most importantly, though, he is hungry to play and show what he can do. He’s the type of character we need at the moment.”
Motherwell are also close to a loan deal for 21-year-old Nottingham Forest defender Louis Laing.
