Scunthorpe United have brought in Arsenal teenager Henri Lansbury on a month's loan.

Lansbury has moved to Glanford Park to build up his first-team experience, having been at Arsenal since the age of nine.

He featured as a substitute in all three of the Gunners' Carling Cup ties earlier this season, but has yet to be involved in the Premier League.

The 18-year-old is due to link up with his new Scunthorpe team-mates on Monday, having scored twice in Arsenal's FA Youth Cup win over Sunderland on Friday night.

The midfielder is likely to make his debut for Scunthorpe in Tuesday night's League One fixture against Southend United.
