Swedish defender trials with Motherwell

Swedish defender Thomas Magnusson has been training with Motherwell. He told Norrkopings Tidningar: "The club is looking for a strong player with good heading ability, and I think I have shown them what they are looking for.

"The tempo is much higher here than in Sweden and the training is longer.

"I actually thought it was going to be a long fight with long balls from the defenders to the strikers and that I would leave with a broken limb or two.

"But Motherwell strike me as a playing team, and they almost get a bit upset when you tackle them during training."

He added: "We'll see (about a move in January). I mean, I have to want to play for the team as well."
