Burton leaves the Iron


Deon Burton has had his contract cancelled by mutual consent.

The 38-year-old’s first team appearances have been somewhat limited this term, having spent some time on the sidelines due to injury.

Burton was loaned out to York City in November but his spell was cut short after he sustained a knee injury on his second appearance for the club.
