Manager Graham Alexander says he is delighted that Mugabi has decided to extend his stay at the club.
We’re delighted Bevis has agreed to extend his stay with us at Motherwell,” manager Graham Alexander said.
“We’ve been really impressed with his contribution since January, both on and off the pitch.
“We can also see the potential for him to get better and continue to help the team achieve future success.”
