Recently Relegated Scunthorpe United are believed to be on the verge of snapping up Shrewsbury Town midfielder Alex Gilliead.
The 23-year-old has struggled to cement a first team place at Shrewsbury, since joining on a free transfer in July 2018.
The former Newcastle United winger has attracted the interest of former Town boss Paul Hurst, and a deal is reportedly close.
Gilliead has made 35 appearances for Shrewsbury, but is often utilised as a substitute or drafted in for cup fixtures.
Shropshire Live understands that a number of Shrewsbury Town players have contacted Scunthorpe to express a desire to link up with Paul Hurst, although the source did not reveal specifically who.
