The Grimsby Telegraph claim that the 22-year-old – who scored 14 goals in 2017/2018 – would help to bolster a front line that has been lacking the required fire power in their recent games.
Ivan Toney has spent the last year on loan at both Scunthorpe and Wigan, so it comes as no surprise that Scunthorpe are keen on taking him back once again. His goal tally only goes to cement their interest in him, and Newcastle are in a position where they could cash in on him on a permanent basis. He clearly does not feature in Benitez’ plans, so there must be no other option than to offload him permanently. There is no point loaning him out time and time again, especially when the Magpies are in need of the funds to bolster their squad further. The youngster would be a fantastic addition to Scunthorpe, and Benitez may regret letting him go if he goes on to improve his current goal tally – particularly as he wants to enhance United’s attack. By the looks of things, Toney could be on his way out at Newcastle, but that will potentially be Scunthorpe’s gain.
