Motherwell: Louis Moult returns to Burton Albion
Louis Moult has returned to Burton Albion after Motherwell exercised a clause to end his loan agreement.
The forward, 30, returned to the Brewers for treatment on an ankle issue during the World Cup break and has not been available since early November.
The injury may now require further treatment and the Steelmen are now looking for a replacement.
“Louis is a legend at Motherwell. We’re gutted it didn’t quite work out the way we hoped,” said manager Steven Hammell.
“While it was clear whenever Louis played that he has the fantastic quality that we all remember, he was playing with a lot of pain which got progressively worse. He will need to try and get that rectified.
“We have identified and been working on alternatives that we hope will be with us soon. January is obviously a tricky month, but a lot of work has been undertaken so far.”
Moult made seven appearances in his second spell at the club, scoring one goal against Heart of Midlothian at Tynecastle.
