Heading into a new calendar year sees the opening of the Transfer Window with assistant manager Ned Kelly labelling it as “an exciting time for the club”.

And with a number of United’s loan spells expiring, the former Republic of Ireland international is revelling the next 31 days as the Iron look to add to their squad to further propel the team up the division.

“January is of course an exciting time for the club,” he said, speaking to The Iron Player.

“Obviously the window opens up and it gives us a chance to hopefully do a bit of business. The Chairman is very keen to help the gaffer which is really good to hear and will be good to see.”

He added: “The window is always an exciting time for everybody when it opens.”

The Scunthorpe management already have their plan in place going into 2015, with a number of potential players already targeted. Kelly gave his comments on the month ahead.

“We obviously want it done as quickly as possible,” he stated.

“If we’re going to keep some of the loan players we want that sorted straight away, but the reality of it is that never happens. We’ve planned and spoken to loads of different people. Our plans are in place, but whether they get over the line is down to other people and other influences sometimes.

“We’re looking at all positions and we’re going to try and do a mixture of permanent signings and loan signings. It all depends what’s in the market and what the other teams are thinking and to a certain degree, what the players are thinking.”
