Serbian striker Filip Stuparević has agreed on a two-year deal with Scottish Premiership club Motherwell.

Filip Stuparević, who scored six goals and provided two assists this season, is set to leave Domžale after just one season. The Serbian forward will not return to England but will continue his career in Scotland. According to Football Planet Slovenia, Stuparević has reached an agreement with Scottish Premiership side Motherwell. He is expected to join the club on a free transfer as his contract with the Slovenian team has expired.

Stuparević signed a one-year contract with Domžale last September. With the opportunity for a change of scenery, the former Serbian youth international decided to take it. Domžale made significant efforts to retain him for another season, but they could not match Motherwell's offer. Stuparević has signed a two-year contract with Motherwell, with an option to extend for an additional two years. Motherwell finished last season in ninth place in the Scottish Premiership.

The team avoided a more serious relegation battle largely thanks to Canadian striker Theo Bair, who joined the club on a free transfer from St. Johnstone and scored 15 goals with six assists. Bair has attracted interest from newly-promoted Bundesliga side St. Pauli and three unnamed Championship clubs.

With Bair likely to leave, Stuparević is expected to fill his shoes at Fir Park. Once a highly touted talent in Serbian football and the youngest debutant in the Mozzart Bet Superliga Serbia, Stuparević had an unsuccessful stint with Watford and went on to play for Czech side Pribram, Metalac from Gornji Milanovac, and impressed in the UAE, scoring 20 goals in 15 matches for Al Arabi last season.
