Caley Thistle’s leading goal scorer last term has signed a two-year deal with Scottish Premiership side Motherwell.
Alex Fischer has signed off for the Steelmen in a deal that will keep up at the club until at least 2019.
After coming through the ranks and eventually playing for Oxford United, the Londoner moved to Spain and had a prolific season with lower-league side Jerez Industrial Club de Fútbol.
He spent the next two years in Belgium, playing for KVK Tienen, KRC Mechelen and, latterly, with K.S.K. Heist. It was whilst in Antwerp his form caught the eye of Italian Lega Pro side A.C. Monza Brianza.
He spent a year in northern Italy before returning home to the United Kingdom for spells with both Mansfield Town and Torquay United.
In January 2016, then Caley boss John Hughes took him to the Scottish Highlands, although an early injury ruled him out of the second half of the 2015/16 campaign.
Speaking to Motherwell’s web TV channel about the move, Fisher said: “It’s fantastic, I spoke to the gaffer at the end of the season, had a good talk and I’m delighted to get this move over the line.”
“It’s a big club with a great fanbase and good history and when I spoke to the manager and he told me about his plans for this season I knew I wanted to be a part of it so it was an easy decision.”
‘Well boss Stephen Robinson added: “I’m delighted to welcome Alex to the club and he will add a bit of firepower to the side.
“He scored 8 goals in 9 games at the end of last season, and there’s a variation in his goals as well, so we’ve got ourselves a terrific first signing.”
