Scunthorpe United have extended the loan deal for Everton defender Shane Duffy to a third month.

It is the second time manager Alan Knill has moved to extend the 19-year-old's spell at Glanford Park.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international has made 10 appearances for the Iron.

After a difficult start to the season, Scunthorpe have lost just one of their last six matches in League One and have moved up to 16th in the table.
