Motherwell have completed their first signings of the summer after bringing in Alex Fisher and Gael Bigirimana.
Fisher was Inverness Caledonian Thistle's leading goal scorer last season while Bigirimana moves to Fir Park form Coventry City.
Fisher began his career at Oxford United and had spells in the lower leagues in Spain, Italy and Belgium.
He then had spells with both Mansfield Town and Torquay United before John Hughes lured him to the Tulloch Caledonian stadium in 2016.
Fisher told Motherwell's website: "It's a big club with a great fanbase and good history and when I spoke to the manager and he told me about his plans for this season I knew I wanted to be a part of it so it was an easy decision."
The 26-year-old rejected an offer from relegated Caley Thistle after scoring six goals in their final eight league games, four of them coming against his new employers.
'Well boss Stephen Robinson added: "I'm delighted to welcome Alex to the club and he will add a bit of firepower to the side.
"He scored eight goals in nine games at the end of last season, and there's a variation in his goals as well, so we've got ourselves a terrific first signing."
Bigirimana, like Fisher, has joined on a two-year deal from Coventry City who were relegated to League Two last season.
Robinson said: "Gael is a super signing for us, he gives us something we've been missing in midfield and comes with a great pedigree, having played at a very good level.
"His desire to come and play for Motherwell and to the Scottish Premiership sold him to me just as much as his ability - Gael is a real coup for us."
In 2015, Rangers took Bigirimana on loan from Newcastle, but illness prevented him playing any football at Ibrox.
