Motherwell have signed central defender Darragh O'Connor on a one-year deal.

The 21-year-old Irishman arrives at Fir Park as a free agent after leaving Leicester City.

He spent two years with the English Premier League side's under-23 squad, having moved from Wexford.

"We really like what we've seen with his attitude and commitment to the game," manager Graham Alexander told the club website.

"He's a young player with a lot of potential, but we also think he's got the capability to break into our first team and compete with our more senior players."
