Striker Jonny Margetts left Lincoln City to join League One Scunthorpe United in a deadline day transfer deal.
The National League’s joint top scorer this season with 5 goals from his seven City appearances, including all four in the 4-0 home win over Southport, Margetts has penned a deal with the Iron that will run until the end of the 2017/18 season and joins for an undisclosed fee.
Margetts, 22, had only joined the Imps in the summer following a successful trial after being released by league rivals Tranmere Rovers.
Originally with Hull City, last season saw him spend the majority of his time out on loan with Stockport County, Altrincham and Southport.
“The plan has always been to sign hungry and ambitious players who want to progress so when a club from a higher division comes in and expresses an interest in such a player it’s very difficult to stand in that player’s way,” said manager Danny Cowley.
“Obviously we’re very disappointed to lose Jonny but we’ve managed to move one of our players on to a League One club and this will give him an excellent chance to further his career.
“It goes without saying that we wish Jonny every success for the future and thank him for his efforts during his short time with us”.
