Scunthorpe have released their retained list ahead of the 2019/20 season, and it’s fair to say there were not too many major shocks.
Iron fans had thankfully had time to accept that Josh Morris would be leaving this summer, after a hugely successful three years with the club.
He looks set to head to the Championship, with a host of clubs ‘reportedly’ tracking the winger. He leaves with Any Old Iron‘s greatest respect, what a player.
The only minor shock was that Yasin Ben El-Mhanni has been offered an extension, but to be honest I want to see more of the lad. A full pre season under his belt with a chance to impress new manager Paul Hurst, and he could be a belter in League Two.
Full details of the retained list is as follows, as per the official Scunthorpe United website:
Out of contract and subsequently free agents: Byron Webster, Josh Morris, Jonathan Flatt.
Options exercised: Lee Novak (automatic extension, as reported in March), Yasin Ben El-Mhanni, Levi Sutton, George Hornshaw, Adam Kelsey.
