IRON BRU understand Scunthorpe United are closing in on the signing of former Doncaster Rovers attacking midfielder Alfie Beestin.

Beestin has been playing in non league with Tadcaster Albion since his release from the Keepmoat in the summer but is said to be a target for the Iron and looks set to a link up with Russ Wilcox and the Iron’s U23 side this January.

He made 31 appearances for Doncaster scoring two goals in the process.
