FORMER Burnley striker Chris Iwelumo has left Scunthorpe United by mutual consent.

The target man had a contract with the Iron until the end of the season but reached an agreement to end the deal early.

Scunthorpe boss Russ Wilcox, formerly Brian Laws’ assistant manager at Burnley, worked with Iwelumo at Turf Moor but the forward has scored only two goals this season.
