League One side Scunthorpe United appear to be in the running to sign striker Oli Johnson when the emergency loan transfer window opens later this week. The 23 year old is firmly out of favour at Norwich City, being the only senior player not to be given a squad number for their Premier League campaign, and seems certain to be pushed out on loan in the near future.
With Yeovil Town having failed in their attempts to land the Wakefield-born striker on a permanent deal just before the transfer window closed, there has been plenty of speculation that they would make a second attempt to sign him on loan later this week.
However, Scunthorpe, who were relegated from the Championship last season, are believed to have joined the list of interested clubs, with the EatSleepSport website claiming that Johnson was a spectator at Scunthorpe's League One match against Colchester United last Saturday. With Scunthorpe under 50 miles away from Johnson's home town, and on the same side of the country as Norwich, they may be in a stronger position to persuade the Yorkshireman to move.
