The 22-year-old Blackburn Rovers centre-back has joined the Scottish outfit on loan until the end of the 2020-21 season.
Magloire impressed during a brief spell at Pools earlier in the season, playing 11 games in all competitions and scoring his first ever senior goal in a 3-1 win at Yeovil Town back in November.
Now he’ll be looking to impress north of the border at Motherwell, who currently sit 10th in the Scottish top flight. And Well boss Graham Alexander made reference to his time at Pools upon announcing his signing.
“We needed competition for the right side of defence and Tyler will provide that,” he told the club website.
“He ticks those boxes of what we are looking for. We’ve spoken to people at Blackburn Rovers, who rate him highly, and he’s got experience playing regularly this season in a winning team.
“We hope he can now make the step up in level for the rest of the season and make a contribution.”
Elsewhere, another former Pools defender, Joe Bunney, secured a deadline day move to League Two side Grimsby Town. The versatile left-back made five appearances in all competitions for Pools in December before leaving the club in January.
