Scunthorpe sign Man Utd midfielder Oliver Norwood
The 20-year-old is eligible to face Newcastle United in the Carling Cup on Thursday and Iron boss Alan Knill is still in the market for more new signings.
"Hopefully we are going to try to get someone else, or maybe a couple, before the weekend, for the game against (Sheffield) Wednesday," said Knill.
"We are low on numbers. With all the games, we are picking up a few injuries so we need a stronger squad.
"But we will just have to wait and see. I am looking to strengthen everywhere."
