“We’re all very happy to bring Harry on board,” said Alexander, whose side are second-bottom and next play Ash Taylor's Aberdeen.

“We need a squad with different attributes and skillsets, and Harry is a player who will fit in with our squad very well.

“I’m sure over the course of the rest of the season, he will make a significant contribution to our results.

“He comes here as a motivated player who can enhance our attacking options. We look forward to working with him”

Smith himself added: “I’m delighted to make the move. I’ve heard a lot about Motherwell and Scottish football already, and I can’t wait to get started.”
