Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins says he is expecting former manager Roberto Martinez to bid for striker Jason Scotland.
Reports yesterday that he wasn't attending this week's training camp in Portugal added fuel to the speculation of him leaving, but the real reason he won't be joining his team-mates is because he has a groin injury.
Ferrie Bodde also won't be joining, but he too is recovering from an injury in his native Holland.
Jenkins explained why Scotland wasn't jetting off to Portugal:
'Jason is injured, he is a Swansea City player and if he was fit he would be in Portugal.
'He has a groin problem and it's a complete coincidence that he is not on the trip.
'Exactly the same is true of Ferrie Bodde.
'If he was fit he would be with the rest of the squad.'
Burnley recently failed in their attempts to sign Scotland, their bid of £1m plus another £500,000 in add-ons was rejected.
The Evening Post believe that Wigan will also follow with a bid, but again most of the payment will depend on the player's attendances and goals scored.
Huw Jenkins said:
'We have had firm interest from Wigan,'
'But as yet, nobody has met our valuation for Jason Scotland or any other one of our players.
'I have had numerous conversations with a variety of clubs about a variety of things. That is the case all day, every day.
'I have not had any written offers since Burnley came in originally for Jason, but I think you could say Wigan are looking to make one.'
Jason Scotland is keen to leave the club and play in the Premiership and at 30 years of age this will be his best opportunity of doing that.
