Scunthorpe United loanee Jak Alnwick is thought to be keen to extend his loan spell at Glanford Park into the New Year according to reports by the Scottish Sun. 

The 25-year-old Hexham-born goalkeeper joined The Iron from Glasgow giants Rangers in August on an initial loan deal until January and the player has impressed in Sky Bet League One.

With Alnwick’s loan deal set to end, it is believed that parent club Rangers are yet to make a decision on the player’s immediate future. It has been reported that the keeper is enjoying his time at Glanford Park and Alnwick is likely to be keen to extend his stay at Scunthorpe United until at least the end of the season.

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard rates Alnwick as his third choice goalkeeper and there is a possibility that another option could be for the player to join Scunthorpe United on a permanent basis, although The Iron would need to offer a significant six-figure fee for his services.

Alnwick joined Rangers from Sky Bet League Two club Port Vale in January 2017 for a transfer fee believed to be in the region of £250,000. The player has gone on to make just 11 first team appearances for The Gers as he has struggled to break into the starting XI at Ibrox.

The keeper has 18 months remaining on his current deal at the Ladbrokes Premiership outfit.
