Hartlepool United keeper Trevor Carson has signed a three-year deal with Scottish outfit Motherwell.
And the 29-year-old Northern Irishman has revealed he is delighted to finally get the 'on-off' deal over the line.
Carson has signed a three-year deal at Fir Park, with Pools receiving an undisclosed fee for their goalie, who played 63 times for the club in two years.
On his Steelmen move, Carson said: "I’m absolutely delighted to get it done finally, it’s been ongoing for a couple of weeks now, it’s been on and off but to get up here, get the medical done and everything signed is great and I’m delighted.
"As long as the deal is ongoing you can never switch off from football, it’s always in the back of your mind and now to get it done means I can go away for a week, switch my phone off and relax before coming back recharged to start pre-season."
Well manager Stephen Robinson admits he is over the moon to get the signing of the former Sunderland keeper done, after protracted negotiations.
"He’s a terrific signing for us, he’s 29-years old and I have high hopes for him looking forward – he’s a very good addition to the goalkeeping department," said
"I’ve been chasing Trevor all summer so to get it over the line is fantastic, our chief scout Martin Foyle has been brilliant and we look forward to working with him."
