Estonian striker Henrik Ojamaa has been offered a contract until the end of the season by Motherwell after impressing manager Stuart McCall on trial.
Ojamaa trained with Well last month and now looks set to join the SPL club, providing the paperwork can be finalised.
McCall does not expect a deal to be completed in time for the former Derby County trainee to feature against Rangers on Monday, but is optimistic the 20-year-old will accept the offer.
"We'll be looking to tie him up but we haven't done it yet," said McCall.
"We have offered him a deal until the end of the season and we're hopeful that will be accepted.
"It won't be done for him to be involved at Ibrox because of all the paperwork for the clearance over the New Year period."
