Sources: Motherwell agree to sign Woolery from Tranmere

Motherwell have agreed a deal to sign Tranmere Rovers striker Kaiyne Woolery, Football Insider can reveal.

The Scottish Premiership club have swooped for the 26-year-old ahead of his contract expiring at the end of this month.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Woolery has been pencilled in for a medical at Motherwell as he completes a free transfer.

The forward helped Tranmere reach the League Two play-offs in the 2020-21 campaign.

He contributed 11 goals and three assists in 52 appearances over the course of the season but Rovers ultimately fell short of promotion.

Born in London, Woolery has spent the majority of his professional career at Swindon Town.

The Robins signed him from Wigan Athletic for a fee in the region of £350,000 in August 2017.

Woolery contributed 14 goals and 14 assists in 111 appearances for the club before leaving on a free to join Tranmere last September.

The versatile forward, who can play anywhere across the front line, has also spent time at Bolton Wanderers, Notts County and Forest Green Rovers.

Motherwell boss Graham Alexander knows of Woolery from his time managing in the English lower leagues with Fleetwood Town, Scunthorpe and Salford City.

Woolery will become the third arrival of the summer at Fir Park after Connor Shields and Justin Amaluzor.

Alexander has lost Chris Long and Devante Cole to Crewe Alexandra and Barnsley respectively this summer.

He will hope Woolery can help fill the void left by the forwards who scored a combined 18 goals last season.
