Motherwell have announced the loan signing of Huddersfield forward Kallum Higginbotham until the end of the season.

The 23-year old previously spent two years at Falkirk, leaving a year ago, but has struggled to pin down a regular place at the npower Championship side and was loaned out to Barnsley and then Carlisle.

Higgingbotham, whose deal is subject to what Motherwell called "registration formalities", will add creativity to Stuart McCall's attacking options following the sale of Jamie Murphy to Sheffield United.

Higginbotham told MFCTV: "I am really pleased and excited to be here and I want to thank the gaffer and all the players for making me feel so welcome."

Higginbotham was signed by Lee Clark after his man-of-the-match display in Falkirk's Scottish Communities League Cup semi-final defeat by Celtic, but Simon Grayson soon took over as Huddersfield boss.

Higginbotham has only made seven appearances for the Terriers and is looking to impress from afar at Fir Park.

"I have gone down there and it's not worked out how I wanted it to," the former Accrington and Rochdale player said. "I have come up here to ignite my career and I'm thankful to the gaffer for giving me this chance.

"People have different opinions and I just think I have not been given a fair chance at Huddersfield. That's just my own opinion. Every time I have pulled on the shirt I think I have done myself justice.

"I need to be playing. This is a good chance to get some minutes, hopefully get some goals and get the confidence back like when I was playing at Falkirk.

"Then I'll have 12 months left on my contract and who knows?"
