Scunthorpe United sign Isaiah Osbourne

17 October 2014

Scunthorpe United have signed former Blackpool midfielder Isaiah Osbourne on a short-term contract.

Osbourne becomes new manager Mark Robins' first signing for the Iron, after putting pen to paper on a deal until January.

The 26-year-old former Aston Villa trainee  has been a free agent since leaving Sky Bet Championship club Blackpool at the end of last season.

Earlier this week it looked like Osbourne would sign for Scunthorpe's League 1 rivals Port Vale, where he had been training.

Vale are thought to have offered the box-to-box midfielder a contract, but he is understood to have turned down the opportunity in favour of a move to Glanford Park.

Osbourne could appear against Port Vale as early as next week, when Scunthorpe head west to face the Valiants on Tuesday night.
