Motherwell's Mark McGhee is working round the clock to try and land Celtic's Adam Virgo and Leicester's Stephen Hughes.

The new Motherwell chief feels the duo will be great additions to his squad at Fir Park.

McGhee worked with Virgo when he was boss at Brighton and knows all about the defender.

The 24-year-old was left behind when Celtic headed out on a tour of America and McGhee hopes to secure him on loan.

"Adam is available on loan. I know what a good player he is and I will now look to see if we can get him to Motherwell," he told the Daily Record.

McGhee is also hoping to sign former Rangers midfielder Hughes from Championship side Leicester.

"This is ongoing, we haven't given up on signing Stephen," added the Well boss.

"We are in discussions with Leicester and the player's representatives and still hope a deal can be done."
