Hurst rules out move for Posh ‘keeper

Scunthorpe manager Paul Hurst has ruled out a move for Aaron Chapman after the club were recently linked with the Peterborough goalkeeper.

Chapman, who was transfer-listed by the League One outfit last week, made 37 appearances for Posh during the 18/19 season.

The Iron are believed to be in the market for a new stopper this summer, following the expiration of Jak Alnwick’s loan deal and the release of Jon Flatt.

However, Hurst told BBC Radio Humberside that there is nothing in the rumours linking the club with Chapman:

“I have probably seen the same website that has reported our interest in a few players and what I would say so far is, they’ve been wrong on every occasion.”

The new Iron boss confirmed to iFollow Iron that he has been working with club scout Lee Turnbull on targeting new players this week.

Providing an update on where the club are at on bringing in their second signing of the summer, Hurst said:

“I don’t think anything will happen until next week. We have had some conversations and if we got positive news back, there could be a couple of things to announce.

“Nothing is set in stone, but we are trying to edge forward and it would be nice if we could get some news to add to what was, I think, a good first signing for the football club.”
