Paterson wants to Leave Scunthorpe

Martin Paterson has handed in a transfer request according to the Official Iron site.



The 21-year-old striker has been linked to the Clarets and was the Scunthorpe's leading goalscorer last season,with 14 goals.The club however suffered relegation after only one season in the Championship.

The Clarets have had two bids rejected to date and this seems to have stirred the striker into action after meeting with his agent this week

Although a number of other clubs have also been linked with the former Stoke man,it could be the Clarets that are now in the driving seat and this latest news will fuel speculation that Paterson could be wearing a Claret shirt for a different club next season.

Paterson decided to hand in a request after he spoke to vice-chairman Rex Garton and general manager Jamie Hammond but Scunthorpe still appear to be digging their heels in:

'Martin Paterson has put in a written transfer request to the club but has been advised, through his agent, that the request is turned down,' explained vice-chairman Rex Garton.

So are we back to square one, or are Scunthorpe about to realise this is the price they have to pay for relegation?

Get in there! Surely we must get this one sorted now! Will be really miffed if he signs for another club after all the hype

surely we must sign hm now. but with the whole managemen on holiay (coyles at the euros and everyone else i in america.) it good be a bad time for this to happen.

Looks like the plan worked. I said what we were doing was just like what other clubs have done to us for our players. Finally we are dirty dealing like the others. Hopefully we can get him at the price we want to pay and not be held to ransom.

I will be a lot happier with the plan if and when we sign him! Will now be gutted,if someone comes in and steals him

I think Coyle is actually on holiday this week and is then going to Euro 2008. The rest went to the US yesterday I believe. Still in this modern age of communication,business shouldn't necessarily be put on hold although it's not a good timing I agree.

I am sure if the right money is mentioned Scunthorpe will soon snap up the cash.

Just hope that will be us and not some poacher!
