The Iron have confirmed the signing of Huddersfield Town striker James Spencer on loan until 5 January.

The 21-year-old has been with the Terriers since 2009 and this will be his sixth loan spell away from the John Smiths Stadium.

Spencer was initially sent out to Northwich Victoria in 2010 where he scored one goal in seven games.

He then joined League Two side Morecambe on an initial six-month loan deal which was then extended for the full season after he impressed.

The Leeds born forward scored eight times in 32 appearances for the Shrimps.

At the end of the 2010-11 season he signed a new two-year deal with Huddersfield before joining Cheltenham Town on another six-month loan.

Spencer netted six times in 18 games during his loan spell and the two clubs came to the agreement that allowed him to remain at Whaddon Road for the remainder of the season.

Last season Spencer faced two further loans away from Huddersfield despite representing the first team on two separate occasions.

Spencer played in the defeats away at Preston and Cardiff before he joined Brentford on a one-month loan in October.

Injury cut his time at Griffin Park short and he never got over that injury as a reoccurring knee problem meant his loan with Crawley was terminated early without playing a game.
