Scunthorpe United sign former Sheffield Wednesday striker Akpo Sodje
STRIKER Akpo Sodje has joined Scunthorpe United on a deal until the end of the season.
The experienced 32-year-old has been a free agent since leaving the Iron's League One rivals Preston North End before Christmas.
Sodje, who is Scunthorpe's first signing of the January transfer window, had been on a month-to-month contract at Deepdale and quit the Lilywhites to try to secure a longer-term stay elsewhere.
He has scored seven goals in 17 appearances this season and previously played for Iron boss Brian Laws at Sheffield Wednesday.

Scunthorpe are the 15th club of the journeyman's career, which has also included spells in Scotland, with Hibernian, and Chinese club Tianjin Teda, who he left in the summer to return to England.
At 6ft 2ins, Sodje will bring height and strength to the Iron front line, which has lacked a physical presence since Leon Clarke returned to Charlton Athletic in early December.
The arrival of the Nigerian, who will wear the number nine shirt for United, almost certainly means United have decided against extending the loan of Ipswich Town's Nathan Ellington.
