West Brom youngster Luke Daniels has joined Motherwell on loan until the end of the season.
The former Manchester United and England Under 18 international is yet to make an appearance for the Baggies and it has been decided that his development would benefit from time spent elsewhere.
Daniels will provide competition for Well's established first-choice keeper Graeme Smith and is looking forward to the challenge.
"I got the opportunity to come up here and hopefully I'll get some experience and we'll see where I go from there," he told the club's official website.
"I've come up to battle with Graeme Smith for the No.1 shirt. He's a very good goalkeeper and I'll have to work hard to get a sniff but to have competition at the club is healthy for everyone.
"It's really good for me to join a club who is flying high with such a good manager and a good set-up which allows younger players their chance to shine.
"We're pushing hard for things and I want to play a part in that.
"It's a good standard of football in Scotland, particularly the SPL so it should be good for my development.
"Tony Mowbray, my boss at West Brom, told me about the league and gave me some hints and tips about what to expect.
"He was positive about this club too so I am looking forward to the challenges ahead."
