Iron manager Mark Robins confirmed the club has opened talks with the parent clubs of Tommy Rowe and Joe Lolley over loan extensions.Rowe, who joined from Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Lolley, from Huddersfield Town, are coming towards the end of their initial month with Scunthorpe – but the United boss is keen to hang onto both after impressive performances in their time with the club.
“We’re looking to do something to extend the loan players we have,” he told The Iron PlayerHD.
“We’re looking to do something with Tommy Rowe and also Joe Lolley, if we can – although we are still waiting on a definitive answer for Joe. We have an agreement for Tommy to extend his stay for another month, so hopefully we can get those tied up when they need to be.
“We’ve still got a little bit of time with Tommy because it’s a week on Saturday when his expires.”
He also confirmed the current circumstances in the treatment room, with a trio of players not too far away from returning to the squad.
“We have got Darius (Henderson) back in training,” he stated.
“He will be in contention. We will also have Jamie Ness back in training very, very shortly and Niall Canavan is around ten days away. Dave Syers is still injured with his hip and other than that we almost have a clean bill of health.
“Luke Williams still needs to be fed in. He is capable of playing a proportion of the game, but I’m still looking for more with him, along with Joe (Lolley) and Kevin (van Veen) and when they get firing they will be big players for the team. They have big qualities and they’re going the right way.
“We’ve got a good nucleus and some decent wins. They will keep working hard and keep focused in getting into the team.”
