Ellington: Hopes for game-time with Iron

The 31-year-old will remain with the Iron until their home game with Shrewsbury Town and goes straight into the squad for the home game with Notts County in League One on Saturday.

The powerful Bradford-born forward initially joined the Tractor Boys in June 2011 but has only made 19 appearances since joining.

Ellington is best known for forming a lethal partnership with Jason Roberts, scoring 67 goals in 146 games as he fired Wigan into the Premier League, before going on to have spells with West Brom, Watford and Preston amongst others.

Overall, the ex-Bristol Rovers man has scored 147 goals in 491 appearances.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
