Motherwell Want McAlister

In today's News Of The World Kenny MacDonald writes a small article (pictured - click to enlarge) that says :

"Motherwell are set to swoop for Morton midfielder Jim McAlister. The new Fir Park boss Mark McGhee has been keeping tabs on the 21-year old and has been impressed. Now he's ready to make a cash-plus-player deal to land McAlister with the experienced Martyn Corrigan a likely candidate to head in the opposite direction."

I've followed McAlister's fortunes closely since he signed for us and after a few reserve matches I was convinced he'd make it and not just at Morton but at a higher level. Last season he blew hot and cold but he has produced some exceptional performances in his Morton career so far. Most notably Dumbarton away a couple of season ago and Dunfermline away this season.

As much as I like Jim I think this could be a good move for both parties. Corrigan is just what we need and I think it's probably about time Jim moved on to the next level in his career. The cash - depending on how much it is- will sweeten the deal.
