According to speculation, the Iron are one of three clubs to have offered Toumani Diagouraga a contract.
The former-Leeds and Brentford midfielder had been reported to be on trial with the Iron for around a week.
According to journalist Pete O’Rourke, United face competition to sign the player from Aberdeen and Bury.

The deadline day signing of Andrew Crofts bolstered the Iron’s midfield ranks, which may suggest the club will pull out of the race to sign the Diagouraga – But a move should certainly not be ruled out, if the most recent rumours are to be believed.
