GOALKEEPER Liam Kelly is poised to seal a permanent move to Motherwell.

The Queens Park Rangers netminder, who joined the Fir Park side on loan in January, is set to return to the Lanarkshire club in the forthcoming week, according to a report in the Scottish Sun on Sunday.

The 25-year-old former Livingston No.1, who was signed for the London outfit by ex-Rangers boss Mark Warburton in 2019, is likely to be in place when Graham Alexander’s side kick off the Premier Sports League Cup at Queen’s Park a week on Wednesday.

Premiership rivals Dundee United were also keeping tabs on the Scotland squad shotstopper, but it appears Kelly is heading back to the Fir Park side where he made 21 appearances in all competitions in the previous campaign.

The Tannadice side are bracing themselves for the exit of Swiss star Ben Siegrist who has been linked with several clubs since the season ended.
