Scunthorpe United FC sign Cordner on loan

Scunthorpe United Football Club have agreed to a season-long loan deal for Bournemouth centre-back Tyler Cordner, it has been announced.

It will be the 21-year-old’s third loan spell away from the Cherries, for whom he is yet to make a competitive senior appearance.

Cordner spent the first half of last season with Ebbsfleet United, in addition to a season with Havant & Waterlooville during their time in the National League in 2018-19.

He scored a total of four goals in 34 appearances.

Speaking to iFollow Iron, Cordner said:

“Frank came up earlier, who I’ve known for a while, and spoke really highly of the club, and I was delighted to get it over the line really. It’s a good opportunity for me to come and play in the league, so hopefully I can help the club.

“From what I saw (on Tuesday), they work hard and try to play the right way. They’re a different side from last year and I think it’s going to be a good season. I just want to play as many games as I can, help the club and enjoy my football. We’ll see where it goes.

“I’m a ball-playing centre-half, good in the air and a leader who likes to talk on the pitch. Hopefully I can provide security at the back,” he continued.

“I’ve experienced different sides of the game so I think I’m ready to come up to League Two now. I’ve been quite lucky with my loans and have had a lot of interest but want to be at places where I’m in and around it and get lots of game time. Hopefully I can come here and do that as well.

“I’m looking forward to getting to know all the players.”
