Boyce to sign on loan

Last updated : 21 November 2013 By

It is understood the Iron are set to take the centre-back on loan initially before making the deal permanent in January after triggering a release clause in his contract.

Despite the sacking of Brian Laws yesterday, Swann has been locked in talks with City counterpart Bob Dorrian and a deal is nearly complete.

Boyce scored an own goal in Lincoln's 5-0 FA Cup defeat at Plymouth last night.
