'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Burnley Didn't Meet Our Valuation For Scotland

Huw Jenkins says Burnley's bid for Jason Scotland hasn't come close to their valuation of the player.

The Swansea City chairman says the club doesn't need to sell any of their players in order to raise required funds.

Burnley's official is more than 1m but it hasn't come close to forcing us to consider accepting their offer for our top goalscorer.

The player's agent Mike Berry is doing his best to drum up interest in his client, and he revealed today that Scotland wants the Swans to consider the bid, as he'd love to join a Premiership club. Martinez is also interested in signing him at Wigan Athletic.

Jenkins told the Official site:

'Burnley have made an approach for Jason Scotland, but our valuation for a player who has finished as our top scorer for the last two seasons is miles apart.

'We value Jason very highly; after all he has scored 53 goals in the last two seasons for us.'

'I think everyone in football is well aware now that we do not need to sell anyone,'' added Jenkins. 'And we certainly won't let any player go for below what we think they are worth; whether that's Jason Scotland or anyone else for that matter.''


Considering Jason Scotland has only one year remaining on his contract, you'd think we'd accept a bid if it was in the region of 2-3m, to avoid the risk of seeing him leave for nothing next Summer.

If they want the man, they should start digging deeper. 2.5m I would say.
