Scunthorpe United & Peterborough United face Championship tussle for transfer target

Central Coast Mariners forward Connor Pain is attracting interest from League One duo Peterborough United and Scunthorpe United, according to The World Game.

However, Hull City are also thought to be watching the winger, who has a UK passport and wouldn’t face issues moving to the Football League.

The 25-year old has made more than 100 A-League appearances and has represented Australia at Under 23 and senior level in the past five years.

He is out of contract at the end of the season, despite starting every game for the Mariners during the current campaign.

Despite playing his entire career in Australia, he has strong connections to the UK. His grandfather Thomas Casey playing for Bournemouth, Newcastle United and Portsmouth amongst others, earning 12 caps for Northern Ireland.

He even helped the Green and White Army to the quarter finals of the 1958 FIFA World Cup.

He would certainly make an interesting addition to a League One squad, given his top flight experience in Oz.

Our View

Hull must surely be at the head of the queue here, but come may will that still be the case? the Tigers are floundering in the Championship, whilst Posh are looking likely to mount a promotion push.

Could he be the next project for MacAnthony and co to turn into a profit? or will he be put to work for the Iron?
