The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

BRIAN Laws ad­mits James Spencer has been a longterm tar­get af­ter snap­ping up the young Hud­der­s­field striker on loan.

And the Scun­thorpe boss has his eyes on se­cur­ing a per­ma­nent deal once Spencer’s five-month stay with the Iron comes to an end.

Spencer is on his sixth loan spell away from the Ter­ri­ers in three years and Laws is hop­ing that he fan­cies set­tling down at Glan­ford Park.

“We tried to bring him in last year when we was in League One but this gives us the op­por­tu­nity to have a good look at him,” said Laws.

“His con­tract is up at the end of this sea­son and if we can get a foothold on him then it might stand us in good stead for bring­ing him in on a longer ba­sis.”
