FORMER Scotland international Robert Snodgrass has emerged as an ambitious target for Motherwell.

The 34-year-old midfielder, who is a free agent after his brief stint at Luton Town, has spoken with the Fir Park club about a surprise switch to Scottish football after originally leaving Livingston for Leeds United in 2008.

There is also interest from the Championship and League One in 28 times-capped Snodgrass who is expected to make a decision within the next 24 hours, according to a report in the Scottish Sun.

New boss Stevie Hammell, who took over from sacked Graham Alexander in the fall-out of the Euro Conference League exit against Sligo Rovers, is searching for experience and quality from middle to front.

Snodgrass could land a contract until January or the end of the season.

Discussions are ongoing on the length of deal, but the veteran is eager to get his future settled to resume his career.

Snodgrass, who also played for West Brom and had a loan spell at Aston Villa, was involved in several big-money transfers in his time across the border, turning out for Norwich City and Hull City before clinching a £10million move to West Ham in January 2017.
