Bristol City and Ipswich among clubs eyeing in-form 25-year-old

Scunthorpe United’s Josh Morris has attracted interest from a host of Championship clubs this January, according to HITC Sport.

Ipswich Town, Bristol City and Rotherham United are all believed to be interested in signing Morris, who joined Scunthorpe from League One rivals Bradford City last summer.

Morris has impressed in the first-half of the 2016/17 campaign, finding the net 18 times and also assisting a further 11 goals- the most recent of his goals coming in the 2-1 victory over Northampton Town, the last time Scunthorpe played.

The 25-year old’s form has helped the Irons mount a promotion challenge, as they look for a return to the Championship for the first time since 2011, Graham Alexander’s side have only lost four times this campaign.

The winger’s side are currently second in the Sky Bet League One table, trailing leaders Sheffield United by just two-points- and also have a game in hand over the Yorkshire side.

Scunthorpe were left frustrated this weekend, as their trip to Charlton Athletic was cancelled on Saturday morning due to a frozen pitch, allowing the Blades to increase their lead at the top of the table following their 2-2 draw with Gillingham.

Alexander’s side face Port Vale on Saturday afternoon, as they look to return to the summit of the League One table.
