Millwall goalkeeper linked with loan move to Scunthorpe United
Scunthorpe United are closing in on a loan deal for Millwall goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall.
The 34-year-old shot-stopper is expected to become Brian Laws' first signing in his third stint as Iron boss next week.
Laws confirmed ahead of tomorrow's FA Cup first round trip to Gillingham that he is looking to add new faces to the Iron's bid to climb clear of the bottom four in League One.
But he would not confirm who, or even which position, he is hoping to strengthen.

Reports in south London though say it is Mildenhall that is heading north.
"The one thing we'd like to do is give the players support and help and that might mean some changes on the park," said Laws, when asked about the balance of the squad he has inherited.
"To do that I'm going to have to try to do some wheeling and dealing and I will do over the coming weeks.
"My hat is firmly in my hand. It's time to beg, steal and borrow. I've called in quite a few favours already and hopefully one of them will break through next week.
"There's a starting point which we need to work from and we've identified where we need to start."
The arrival of a new keeper is likely to mean a break for current Iron number one Sam Slocombe.
Mildenhall, who spent the 2005-06 season at Grimsby Town, is a veteran of more than 300 league appearances, but has slipped to third in the pecking order behind David Forde and Maik Taylor at The Den.
He last played a first-team match in February and was told he was surplus to requirements by Lions boss Kenny Jackett back in the summer.
But he has so far been unable to find new employers.
