Scunthorpe United have ended their interest in former Auxerre defender Soumahoro Johnson, who had been training with the club.

The former Ivory Coast Under-21 defender, now 23, is a free agent having been released by the French side in the summer.

United boss Alan Knill told BBC Radio Humberside: "It's a negative as he wasn't good enough for us.

"He had two days here and we felt that he wasn't better than what we've got."
