The Iron have confirmed their fifth signing of the summer after midfielder Devonte Redmond joined on loan late last night.

The 20-year-old is yet to feature for the Manchester United first team, but has impressed for their under-21s side, having scored four goals in 26 appearances last season.

When asked about the addition of Redmond, Graham Alexander said, “He’s got loads of energy. He can handle and pass the ball with both feet and he is an exciting, young talent at Manchester United. They think highly of him and we are really pleased to get him on board with us.”

Redmond joins the club initially on loan until January. The central midfielder will go straight into the squad to face Luton later today, in what is the Iron’s final pre-season friendly.
