Scunthorpe have completed their 10th summer signing with the arrival of former Wolves striker Sam Winnall.

The 23-year-old, recently released by Wolves, has put pen to paper on a one-year deal after scoring three goals in four appearances for them during a trial spell.

Scunny look at former Premier League strikers

Manager Brian Laws has challenged Scunthorpe trialists Deon Burton and Craig Fagan to impress him as the two strikers seek a new club.

Laws intends to run the rule over the pair in a friendly against Frickley Athletic on Tuesday night as the League Two outfit crank up their pre-season preparations.

Scunthorpe are looking at Burton and Fagan, both without a club since respective releases from Gillingham and Bury, as they look to bolster their attacking options.
