SCUNTHORPE hope to complete the loan signing of Barnsley striker Kayode Odejayi on Thursday morning.

The 29-year-old Nigeria international is expected to join for an initial month and boost The Iron`s striking options ahead of Saturday`s clash with Leeds.

The 6ft 3in striker joined Barnsley from Cheltenham for £200,000 in June 2007.

Odejayi is famous for his historic winner at Oakwell against Chelsea in last year's FA Cup sixth round and capped a memorable year with an international call-up for Nigeria's summer matches.

The targetman has managed only one goal in 27 appearances this season.
