Smith told his new club’s website:

“I’ve heard a lot about Motherwell and Scottish football already, and I can’t wait to get started.”

Motherwell manager

Graham Alexander

described Smith as a

“motivated player who can enhance our attacking options”.

Northampton boss Keith Curle told the Cobblers’ website

: “We have had a lot of interest in him from clubs in League One and in League Two and in Scotland and this is a move that appeals to him.

“I think a change of scene will do him good. Like all strikers, he wants and needs to be playing every week and I explained to Harry that I was not in a position to guarantee him as much game time as he may have wanted over the next few months.

“It is in everyone’s interests that he goes out, plays first-team football and hopefully does well for Motherwell and scores some goals.”
