Sears: No Scunthorpe move
Nigel Adkins has quashed speculation linking West Ham's Freddie Sears with a loan move to Scunthorpe.
The highly-rated young striker spent time with Crystal Palace earlier this season before returning to Upton Park.
He has been pushed further down the pecking order at West Ham following the winter arrivals of several forwards and reports have suggested he could be loaned out again.
Scunthorpe was rumoured to be a possible destination but Adkins has stressed that he is happy with the players he currently has at his disposal and is not looking to bring any new faces to Glanford Park.
"Categorically, no. I haven't got a clue where that one's come from," he told the Scunthorpe Telegraph.
"His agent must be working overtime. It's 100% no. I'm not looking at Freddie Sears.
"I was very happy with the squad of players I have assembled."
Adkins added: "Obviously we have got a couple of injuries and suspensions which we might have to react to, but that's what we've got a squad of players for at this moment in time."
