Former Motherwell defender Louis Laing is hoping to fix himself up with a new club as soon as possible after deciding to leave Fir Park.

Laing cancelled his contract at Motherwell by mutual consent earlier this month after returning from a successful loan spell at Notts County.

A number of clubs in England and Scotland have already shown an interest in the former Sunderland youngster with Inverness boss Richie Foran confirming he would like to sign the central defender, as reported in the Scottish Sun.

The former England youth internatonal started his career at Sunderland, but made just one first-team appearances for the Black Cats before leaving for Nottingham Forest in the summer of 2014.

The talented stopper never made a first-team appearance for Forest spending two spells out on loan at Notts County and Motherwell before making his move to Fir Park permanent in the summer of 2015.

Laing is keeping options as to where his next move should be, but he feels he is ready to step straight back into action after playing in 27 games for Notts County in League Two during the first half of the season.

"I felt it was the right thing to do to leave Motherwell as I felt I would not be playing back there," Laing told HITC Sport.

"It is risky to become a free agent during the middle of the season, but I've taken my destiny into my own hands.

"I am hoping to get fixed up as soon as possible and I have had a few offers already.

"I am training every day to keep myself ticking over, but it is not like I have not played since last summer or anything.

"I played 27 games for Notts County on loan this season and enjoyed it there so I feel I am ready to go straight back into a team and I am confident I could do that."
