Striker Leon Clarke unlikely to be recalled early from loan spell at Scunthorpe United
Any fears Scunthorpe United would see striker Leon Clarke recalled early by his parent club have been eased as Charlton boss Chris Powell has reiterated the front man has no future with the Addicks.
Charlton have a 28-day recall on Clarke which would come into effect next Friday. And with their attacking options hit by the news Yann Kermorgant faces up to two months out with a broken ankle, there were suspicions the Iron's new goal-scoring sensation could be on his way back.
Clarke has helped to turn United's fortunes around with four goals in as many games since arriving at Glanford Park, with Scunthorpe unbeaten in that time.
With no-one else in claret and blue on the scoresheet during that spell, losing him before his three months are up would be a blow.

However, it seems likely Powell will make his own move in the loan transfer market to cover Kermorgant's absence, making it clear Clarke does not feature in his plans.
"Leon will eventually go somewhere permanently," he said. "If it doesn't happen then he will come back here because he is still contracted to us.
"He's doing all the right things at Scunthorpe. Whether his future lies there or somewhere else we'll have to wait and see."
