Scunthorpe United move for Peterborough's Nicky Ajose
Scunthorpe United have signed Peterborough striker Nicky Ajose on a three-month loan deal.
The 19-year-old joined Posh in the summer from Manchester United and made just one appearance before suffering a hamstring injury.
He played under Iron manager Alan Knill during a loan spell at Bury last term.
"I've got five strikers and Nicky will go out on loan and get some games," Posh boss Darren Ferguson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire .
"With only having five [match day] substitutes, it's a problem, it's a situation where I could have two strikers in the stand.
"At the end of the day I've got to make decisions and I felt it was the right decision for him and the right decision for the club.
"Fans may look at it like we've spent a bit of money on him, but I've got five strikers, I can't play all five of them."
Posh, who have a 24-hour recall clause on Ajose, are likely to recall David Ball from a similar spell at Rochdale when his initial 28 days at Spotland are up at the end of the month.
