Newly promoted Premiership side Burnley have made an official bid for striker Jason Scotland.
His agent Mike Berry has revealed that the Clarets have made a 7-figure offer for the 30 year-old, while Wigan boss Roberto Martinez has also shown an interest in Swansea City's top goalscorer.
Owen Coyle is keen to add Scotland to his side for next season in the Premier League, having watched him score both goals in Swansea's 2-0 win last season at Burnley.
He has been a proven goalscorer throughout his career, averaging around a goal a game at every club he's played for.
Scotland played a big part in his first season at the club when we won the League One title, scoring 29 goals to help us win promotion.
Some fans have been critical of the Trinidad and Tobago international for his rather lazy and idle style of playing, while others are grateful for his consistent goalscoring contribution.
His agent Mike Berry said Burnley and Wigan could compete in a bidding war to sign him:
'Jason would like Swansea to seriously consider the bid because he has aspirations to play in the Premier League,'
'He has sweated blood for Swansea in the last few years and hopefully the fans have enjoyed his performances.
'But Jason has turned 30, he wants to play at the highest level and play in the Premier League and this is an opportunity for him to play at the top - and I think everyone at Swansea would agree he has earned the right to do so.
'Negotiations are still on-going, but it is a substantial bid. I believe the bid from Burnley is in excess of £1m.
'But Wigan are very interested so it will be interesting.
'Jason, though, is a Swansea City player with one year left on his contract so any deal - whichever club he goes to - has got to be right for Swansea.'
