Scotland: I'll Consider Premiership Move

Scotland: I'll Consider Premiership Move

Jason Scotland says he'll consider joining a Premiership club in the Summer transfer window if an offer was to come in for him.

The 30 year-old has been the club's top goalscorer in the last two seasons and has helped the Swans rise up through the Football League.

Scotland has said now that he's not getting any younger and the Premiership is where he wants to play.

Fulham and Middlesbrough have apparently shown their interest and the latter have been linked with a potential £2.5m offer.

Scotland told the Western Mail:

'The Premier League is where I want to be,'

'I am contracted to Swansea for another year, but if an offer came in then I would have to take a long look at it and weigh up the options.

'I am still under contract at Swansea City and it's up to the chairman and gaffer what happens. But if someone came in then I'd have to look at it seriously.

'Every player's ambition is to play at the highest level and that's the Premier League. I want to be there sooner rather than later.

'I am not getting any younger. I am 30 and managers will probably start saying I am losing half a yard because I am getting older.

'My agent said he'd heard interest from certain clubs, but he wouldn't tell me who. He will probably speak to the manager and chairman and I guess we'll know everything in the summer.

'If we were in the Premier League then you wouldn't need to think about the interest from other clubs. The gaffer wouldn't have to fight to keep any players.

'I want to play in the Premier League before it's too late. Obviously I wanted to do it with Swansea, which would be a massive achievement, because that would have meant I was playing week in, week out and not fighting for my place.'


Scotland also said how much he's enjoyed his 2-year spell at Swansea City, he added:

'It has been a great two years. When I first came to Swansea there were other clubs interested, but I didn't want to go anywhere else.

'I knew they played great football and I wanted to be a part of that. I have no regrets about coming here and it has been two outstanding seasons. It has been a great move for me.'

will really struggle in the Prem, only a lower level prem team would be interested and in a team not playing well or creating chances could almost finish his career, should think long and hard before making that step

Made his intentions clear. His agent is probably on the case right now.

the prem clubs showing an interest in him though are struggling and could get relegated. will a decent club make an offer that we can't possible turn down?

I think it'll take a £2m bid to tempt us to sell.
