The 26-year-old, who spent six months on loan at the SPL club in 2008, arrives from Danish club Silkeborg on a two-year deal.

Nielsen counts Blackburn and Manchester City among his former clubs and will challenge Lee Hollis for a first-team place at Fir Park.

He told the Motherwell website: "I'm delighted to be back and having been at some big clubs where it was hard to get a game, I can't wait to get playing again.

"I know Motherwell well from my six months here before and I know it's a great club to be at.

"I'm really pleased to get this sorted and am looking to establish myself as No 1 and do really well.

"We finished second last season and if we can do that again it would be a great achievement."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
