Iron defender Scott Laird has signed for League One side Walsall on loan, following Rico Henry’s move to Brentford.

The 28-year-old joins the Saddlers until January.

He signed for United from Preston in the summer of 2015 and has made 39 appearances in all competitions for Scunthorpe, scoring twice.

Laird told Walsall’s official website: “I’m really pleased to be here.

“When it came up, I snapped the gaffer’s hand off and it was something I wanted to get done quite sharpish.

“Walsall have always played an attractive style and that was definitely something that encouraged me to come here”.
