Iron manager Paul Hurst has revealed he is hopeful of securing the signature of a striker before Saturday's game against Crawley Town.
Scunthorpe midfielder Funso Ojo has seen his move to Scottish Premiership side Hibernian fall through amid a contract dispute with the Iron.
It had been a little quiet since the Iron released their retained list on May 17, but that may all be about to change with the first rumour of pre season unveiled.
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.
As Scunthorpe prepare to embark on another League Two journey, pressure has been mounting for Peter Swann to appoint a manager from outside of the club, and Paul Hurst has been touted as the man who has been offered the job this week.
The season may be over, and the Iron may have been relegated, but one player that the United faithful will be eager to see back in action next campaign is Ryan Colclough.
