Cummins agrees Motherwell deal

Highly-rated Motherwell defender Adam Cummins has reportedly agreed a new deal at Fir Park.

Cummins has established himself as a key member of Stuart McCall's side this season, making 16 appearances for the Steelmen.

The 19-year-old joined Motherwell last January after leaving Everton and he has helped fill the void left by the departures of Tim Clancy and Stephen Craigan in the summer.

Cummins' performances have not gone unnoticed with a number of clubs in England keeping tabs on his progress in Lanarkshire.

Motherwell have moved to reward Cummins for his fine form with a new deal to keep him at the club until 2015, according to Sky Sports.

Cummins was delighted to pledge his future to Motherwell.

"I am delighted to have agreed a new deal with Motherwell as I have really enjoyed my time here since coming up from England," Cummins told skysports.com.

"Things have gone great for me and I am just focused on doing my best for the club for the rest of the season."
