Adkins: Wants Lillis to gain experience
Scunthorpe United boss Nigel Adkins is keen to send goalkeeper Josh Lillis out on loan.
Lillis has made six appearances for the Iron this season as he provides the back-up to regular No.1 Joe Murphy.
Adkins is eager for the 21-year-old to gain more experience and confirmed the keeper is available for loan.
"For Josh's development he needs to be playing football and we are hopeful that during this transfer window something can materialise," Adkins told the Scunthorpe Telegraph.
"He has been available for loan for a while now, but it is up to a club of at least Conference standard to be in a position to take him.
"A goalkeeper of course can only play in one position."
Meanwhile, Adkins has secured third-choice goalkeeper Sam Slocombe on a short-term contract until the end of the season.
