Scunthorpe United have begun their transfer window manoeuvres in double quick time with the capture of Macclesfield midfielder Neil MacKenzie.

The 29-year-old had been on loan at Glanford Park for a month but has turned the arrangement into a permanent deal after impressing Iron boss Brian Laws.

The star has signed until the end of the current campaign, but the transfer includes an option for Scunthorpe to extend the deal by twelve months.

Since making the leap to League One MacKenzie has made eight appearances, scoring once for his new side.

The move to Glanford Park represents an upturn of fortunes for the former Stoke trainee, after being transfer listed by Macclesfield in October.
