Scunthorpe United are reported to be closing in on the signing of Burnley midfielder Aiden O’Neill, following the termination of his loan stay at Fleetwood Town.
O’Neill was originally set to stay at Fleetwood for the season, but his loan spell has been cut short allowing him to play for Australia Under 23s in the 2018 AFC U23 Championship.
Playing for the Socceroos will rule him out of action for the entire month of January, but reports suggest the Iron are still keen.
