Simon Lappin loaned to Motherwell

Last updated : 31 January 2008 By Firparkcorner

Simon moved from St Mirren a year ago and has made thirty five appearances for the Canaries. He's 5'11" tall and he celebrated his twenty fifth birthday last week. Roeder is said to be reshuffling his squad and Lappin has not played in the first team since November.

Although he is known as a left sided midfielder he has played at left back an area which Mark McGhee has been trying to cover. He came through the ranks at St Mirren and their fans were disappointed to see him leave. The fee for his move south was reported as £100k.

Simon will be familiar with SPL football and must be thought of as an immediate contender for a starting place. Good luck to him.
