St Mirren striker Sutton joins Motherwell

The 24-year-old has signed a three-year and admitted he had been lured by UEFA Cup football and trying to repeat Motherwell's third-place finish in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

"I am looking forward to getting back playing in the SPL," he told www.motherwellfc.co.uk.

"I've always enjoyed my spells in Scotland and have usually done not too bad.

"The teams I've played with have always tried to play good football and Motherwell are no different. The SPL is a great league with every week being a real test.

"Europe is also massive for us. If we win one tie we'll be in the group stages and could play against some massive clubs so I am really looking forward to that.

"Motherwell, to a certain extent, were the surprise team last year and to finish third was a hell of an achievement.

"I want to come here, score goals, and help us get there again."
