Fir Park manager Stuart McCall has agreed terms with the midfielder, who made 73 appearances for the Steelmen between 2007-09, and Hughes will be Motherwell’s player until January.

He has been training with the first-team squad for several weeks and the deal gives him the opportunity to put himself in the shop window.

Hughes has one Scotland cap, earned in 2009 against Japan.
