Joe Chalmers finally cut his ties with Celtic after being with the club since the age of 10. The 21-year-old who mostly plays at left back has signed a permanent deal with Motherwell.
Joe has been hindered by injuries in the last couple of years which has halted any progress he was making in the developmental squad.
Joe spent some time in the second half of last season at Falkirk where he made 11 appearances for the senior team.
Motherwell let 15 players go after surviving the relegation play-offs against lower league Rangers in a 6-1 aggregate score-line. Their manager Ian Baraclough has now started to rebuild his squad and sees Joe as a vital part of the rebuilding process.
Motherwell boss Ian Baraclough added: “He’s a young player with fantastic potential who we’ve tracked for some time.
“He’s versatile, mobile with a good range of passing and will add competition in numerous positions in defence.” said the Motherwell Manager
“He’s got a good pedigree having came through the Academy and played for Celtic’s first team and had significant youth International experience. I am really looking forward to working with him over the next few years.”
We wish Joe all the best!
