Speaking via the Express & Star, Jon said; "Scott is somebody I would really like to keep. I know we have got him until January but I don’t mind saying I’d like to keep him as a part of the group. We brought him in for experience because he brings a calm head. I’ll be doing what I can to keep him here long term."
