Whitney on Laird - "Negotiations With Scunthorpe are Still Ongoing"

Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to the local press and offered another update on the status of on-loan Scunthorpe United defender Scott Laird, who is keen to extend his stay at the club but could depart in a few days if a new deal can't be reached.
Walsall manager Jon Whitney has spoken to the local press and offered another update on the status of on-loan Scunthorpe United defender Scott Laird, who is keen to extend his stay at the club but could depart in a few days if a new deal can't be reached.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Jon said; "Negotiations with Scunthorpe are still ongoing. It’s still a little bit tit-for-tat. It didn’t work in my favour that Townsend got injured last week. He is out for four-to-five weeks. When I saw that, alarm bells started to ring.

"Then Norwich are in a position where they want to bring their players back. It’s going to be very difficult this month with the new guidelines and rules. Things aren’t looking great because Scunthorpe are going to protect themselves. I’ve been in football a long time and promises aren’t always kept. We will see what happens over the coming days but I need to have a Plan B in case we do lose Lairdy."
