thumbnail Hello,

A highly-rated young Gunner is set to gain further first-team experience with League One Scunthorpe...

Scunthorpe United, sixth in Coca-Cola Football League One, have agreed a deal that will keep young Arsenal forward Henri Lansbury at Glanford Park for another month.

Lansbury has already made four appearances for the Iron since moving to Scunthorpe from the Emirates in January, and he scored in last week's 4-2 defeat at Swindon Town.

He is now set to extend his loan spell with the League One outfit, whose manager Nigel Adkins is pleased to have secured the Londoner's services for a further month.

"We have got the okay from Arsenal, though at the moment the piece of paper is still not signed," Adkins told the Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph.

"Henri is a precocious talent who is captain of his country at his age group level.

"He is a talent that hopefully we can get on the field at the appropriate times and get him on the football."
