Scunthorpe are believed to be keeping tabs on Whitby Town starlet Junior Mondal, ahead of a potential January swoop.
HITC, who have been credited with getting various Iron rumours correct in the past, claim Scunthorpe and fellow League One side Sunderland are both interested in the former Middlesbrough youngster.
Mondal has impressed with Evo-Stik Premier North side Whitby Town so far this season, which has led to interest much higher up the football pyramid.
The youngster was highly regarded whilst with ‘Boro, but was surprisingly released in the summer of 2017, having made no appearances for the first team.
This is certainly one to keep your eye on, but with January still quite some time away, expect to hear nothing more for a while.
