Forward Kyle Wootton has made his loan move to National League side Notts County permanent after a successful four months at Meadow Lane.

The 23-year-old departs the Iron for an undisclosed fee and brings a 13-year association with the football club to an end after coming through United's academy. Wootton joined the Iron as a 10-year-old in 2007 before signing his first professional contract in 2014.

The 2014-15 campaign was a season Wootton will never forget. He made his first-team debut against Reading in a 1-0 loss in the second round of the Capital One Cup. 

In his breakthrough season, he made 14 appearances for the club, and scored his first professional against relegation rivals Port Vale deep into stoppage time to rescue a vital point. Wootton scored a back post header to aid the Iron to a 16th-placed finish.

With loans to Lincoln City, North Ferriby United, Cheltenham Town, Stevenage and Halifax Town across the successive three years, he'd still get opportunities with Scunthorpe and ended his stint in North Lincolnshire with 33 starts and 45 substitute appearances, scoring 11 goals.

Since being on loan to Notts County, Wootton has made 25 appearances in all competitions, including 24 starts, scoring 12 goals.

We thank Kyle for his efforts while with the club and wish him well for the future.
