Scunthorpe United have appointed Oldham head of recruitment Lee Turnbull to the same role at Glanford Park.

Turnbull was appointed to his position with the Latics in July.

The 48-year-old former Iron player previously had two spells as chief scout at Scunthorpe, leaving the club in 2015 to join Sheffield United.

"We're delighted to have Lee back with us at the football club," chief executive officer James Rodwell told the club website.

"We didn't want to lose him to Sheffield United in the first instance but we understand that, at the time, it was an exciting new opportunity for him and one that was hard to turn down."
