Scotland international Stephen McManus has agreed a one-year contract with Motherwell, according to local media reports.

McManus has been training with Stuart McCall's squad this summer following his release from Middlesbrough.

The 30-year-old is a free agent after his contract with the Championship club expired at the end of last season.

McManus, who played his last match for Boro in March, had previously spent two spells on loan with Bristol City.

The former Celtic defender had also been linked with Hibernian but has instead agreed terms at Fir Park.

The Reds have been heavily linked with a summer swoop for the Denmark international, who is about to enter the final year of his contract at the Amsterdam ArenA.

Those rumours have increased after Brendan Rodgers' men missed out on the signature of Shakhtar Donetsk star Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who joined Borussia Dortmund earlier this month.

Ajax boss Frank de Boer revealed over the weekend that he would not stand in Eriksen's way, should the 21-year-old express a desire to move to Anfield this summer.

When quizzed on his future, Eriksen confirmed he is ready to move on to a bigger club, but stressed he had yet to hear of any offer.

"I do not know more about this than you," he told Voetbal International. "If I leave, I have to go to a club that is bigger than Ajax in every way.

"But no clubs like that have shown interest yet. I've read a lot about it, but heard nothing from the club."
