A host of Championship sides are keeping an eye on Scunthorpe defender Jacob Bedeau as he enters the final months of his contract at the Sands Venue Stadium, according to The Athletic’s Gregg Evans.

The 20 year old is out of contract in the summer and it is suggested Huddersfield, Luton, Barnsley and Rotherham have all monitored the former Bury centre back’s progress closely since he made the £1million move from Gigg Lane to Villa Park at the age of just 17.

The London born centre back has made nine appearances so far this term, scoring one goal in the recent 2-0 win at Oldham.
