League One promotion contenders Scunthorpe United are interested in signing Cardiff City striker Adam Le Fondre, who is currently on loan at Championship side Wigan Athletic.

The 30 year-old talisman is very well known up and down the Football League pyramid for his clinical finishing and prolific goal scoring.

The Cardiff City striker is currently on loan at fellow Championship side Wigan Athletic but has struggled to break into the first team consistently this season.

Making only 11 appearances for the Latics so far this term, the Stockport born striker has netted just once in the league and is growing frustrated with his lack of playing time at the DW Stadium.

During his career so far, Le Fondre has netted 164 times in 287 league appearances collectively for Stockport, Rochdale, Rotherham, Reading, Cardiff, Bolton, Wolves and now Wigan.

Adam Le Fondre had his best goal scoring return in the late 2000’s with impressive records at Rotherham and Reading in particular before making a big money move over the border to Welsh side Cardiff City.

The lure of Scunthorpe who are currently flying high in League One, sitting in third spot, and who could offer the forward more playing time may be enough to secure his transfer this January.

The Iron aren’t short of goals this term, scoring 48 in League One so far this season, but with top scorer Josh Morris attracting unwanted attention from elsewhere a move for Le Fondre could be needed to keep their promotion push on track should Morris leave in January.
