Terriers defender would relish Iron return

Published Add your comment

Huddersfield defender Andy Butler would relish the chance to return to former club Scunthorpe.

The 26-year-old moved to the Galpharm Stadium from the Iron on a three-year deal in 2008, but has been made available for transfer by Town manager Lee Clark.

"Scunthorpe have always been close to me because I grew up there and I still speak to some of the boys," Butler told the Huddersfield Examiner.

"I'm not going to start saying too much because whether anything happens is up to (Scunthorpe manager) Nigel (Adkins), but obviously if the chance to go back came along it's something I'd be interested in."

Butler added: "I miss certain people and fooling around with people I grew up with, so in that way it has been tough. It was my home for want of a better word and if Scunthorpe had been able to match financially what I was offered at Huddersfield, I would have stayed.

"It was difficult to leave but sometimes you have to move on, even though Huddersfield has not turned out to be the best move.

"But I know I have to stand by my choices and get on with things. Football is a funny game and you never know what is going to happen."
