No deal for now, but Eddie Nolan continues to train with Scunthorpe United
FREE agent Eddie Nolan is continuing to train with Scunthorpe United.
But the chances of him earning even a short-term deal with the Iron are slim, it would seem.
Boss Brian Laws had been keen to explore the possibility of making the versatile Irishman part of his squad, but discussions with the club’s board yesterday have vetoed those plans.
“We’re monitoring the situation with Eddie,” said Laws on Tuesday lunchtime.

“He’s still training with us at the moment, but we can’t offer him anything at this present time.
“We’ll have to wait and see if he’s got any other options to do something.
“If we do anything, it will probably be on as a ‘pay-as-you-play’ basis, but obviously he’s got to live and pay the bills and to do that he needs a job.
“He’ll be trying to get something somewhere else if we can’t offer him anything on a permanent deal.”
Nolan, 24, has been without a club since being released by Scunthorpe at the end of last season, but linked up with the club again a fortnight ago to try to keep his fitness up.
He spent a large chunk of the first part of the campaign training with Doncaster Rovers.
Laws said Scunthorpe will review the potential to offer the full-back terms at the end of the transfer window.
But unless there are outgoings at Glanford Park, it would appear unlikely.
