Forest Green defender Nathan McGinley has penned a deal at Scottish Premiership outfit Motherwell.

FGR boss Mark Cooper had offered the former Middlesbrough defender a new deal, but the 23-year-old instead opted for a move to Fir Park.

McGinley, made 41 appearances for Rovers in the league after making a loan move from Middlesbrough permanent in January 2019.

“I can’t wait to get started,” said McGinley, when speaking on Motherwell's club website.

“I’ve been up the last few days and got myself settled ahead of training with the boys for the first time, and I’m ready to get going.

“It’s a chance for me to come and develop my game further, and work with a coach in Stephen Robinson who has a track record of making players better.

“Obviously it’s my first experience of playing in Scotland. But I’ve heard so many good things about Motherwell and I’m excited to be a part of it.”
