Motherwell have signed Serbian forward Filip Stuparevic on a two-year deal, with the option of a third season.

Stuparevic, 23, became the youngest ever player in the Serbian top flight when he made his debut at age 15 with Vozdovac.

He joined Watford in 2019, amid reported interest from clubs including Juventus, and was most recently at Slovenia's Domzale.

He scored six goals in 22 appearances last season and has been capped up to Under-21 level by his country.

"With over 100 games played in the Serbian top flight, you can see he has experience," said Motherwell boss Stuart Kettlewell.

"He had a really successful start to his career and burst on to the scene. When you have teams in the Premier League and teams like Juventus interested in you, it shows us all the talent Filip has.

"Filip had a really good season last year and having watched all his games, I know the type of player we're getting. He has real flair and can do a lot of good on the pitch."

Fellow forward Zach Robinson has already joined Motherwell on a two-year deal this week while midfielders Ross Callachan and Tom Sparrow and defenders Kofi Balmer and John Koutroumbis have also been recruited.
