Skysports.com understands Scunthorpe are closing in on the signing of Morecambe midfielder Mark Duffy.
Iron boss Ian Baraclough is keen to bolster his squad in this month's transfer window and has targeted a move for highly-rated winger Duffy.
Duffy has been a massive success at Morecambe since joining the club initially on loan from Southport in February 2009 before making the switch permanent later that summer.
The 25-year-old has made over 50 appearances for the Shrimps and his performances have attracted the interest of a host of clubs.
However, Scunthorpe are hoping to win the race for the Liverpool youngster and are in talks to bring the player to Glanford Park.
