Scunthorpe United Captain, Cliff Byrne, is poised to sign a new two-year contract with the club.
Byrne, 28, enjoyed a successful loan spell at Glanford Park during the 2002-03 campaign and returned on a permanent basis the following summer after his release from Sunderland.
It was the Irish defender's goal in the dying moments of last season's League One campaign that sent Scunthorpe into the playoffs, where they beat MK Dons and then Millwall to return to the Championship at the first attempt.
Byrne told the Scunthorpe Telegraph: "I have had some good discussions with the chairman and see no reason why I will not sign the new contract."
