Grella: Joins Well on loan

Motherwell have bolstered their attacking options with the capture of Leeds' Mike Grella on loan for the rest of the season.

Grella has enjoyed a spell with Carlisle United this term, scoring three goals in 10 League One appearances.

With competition for places in Leeds' starting XI fierce, Grella will now continue to accrue first-team experience with the Fir Park outfit.

Motherwell were on the lookout for a new striker after loanee Nick Blackman opted to join rivals Aberdeen from Blackburn until the summer.

The American striker is now in line to make his SPL debut for Well in Saturday's clash against struggling Hibs at Fir Park.

"The loan spell clearly did Mike good and this is another opportunity for him," manager Simon Grayson told Leeds' official website.

"Opportunities for him have been limited here with the players we have and this will be beneficial to all concerned.

"The SPL is a good standard and hopefully he will continue to get games and gain in experience."
