Scunthorpe boss Graham Alexander has told the Scunthorpe Telegraph that there has been no bid for in demand midfielder Hakeeb Adelakun, or any other player at the club.

Adelakun, who is out of contract in the summer, was linked with Championship side Preston North End overnight having impressed against Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday infront of watching Lilywhite’s boss Alex Neil.

The 21 year old has impressed for Scunthorpe this term and it is understood that a number of clubs from the Championship are tracking his progress, however Alexander stated that the club have not received any bids for the attack minded midfielder.

“It is all speculation and we certainly haven’t had a bid from anybody and certainly not Preston, even though Alex was here the other day,” Alexander told the Telegraph.

“We will see how it pans out over the next few days as it is getting closer to the end of the window.

“I expect to have general interest in more than one of our players, but whether it is right for the club, the player and what we need, until get something official I can’t make any judgements.


“It is important we have a strong squad but it is also important for the club to be able compete financially, so we take all these things into account.

“Until somebody rings us up or sends us an official bid it is all speculation.”
