Scotland Told He Can Leave Ipswich Town

Scotland Told He Can Leave Ipswich Town

Jason Scotland could be closer to making a return to Swansea City after being told he can leave Ipswich Town, according to sources.

The Daily Mail, though not famous for getting things like this right, are one of a few sources suggesting that after holding talks with the Tractor Boys, the striker has been told that he can leave Portman Road - allowing him to get the move he wants - back to the Liberty Stadium.

Brendan Rodgers said he'd be interested in signing Jason Scotland if he became available on loan, so it looks like the former Trinidad & Tobago could be on the verge of making a sensational move back to South Wales.

The 31 year-old made a name for himself during a 2-year spell at Swansea City before following Roberto Martinez to Wigan Athletic 18 months ago.

Things never worked out with the Latics as he struggled to make an impact in the Premier League and joined Ipswich Town last Summer for a fee of £750,000. The Swans had the opportunity to buy him back but they weren't willing to pay Wigan's asking price.

It seems like Scotland isn't in Paul Jewell's plans at Ipswich, so a change of manager at Portman Road (following Roy Keane's sacking) could work out well for us.

According to a source, Jason Scotland has attracted the interest of up to 4 Championship clubs, but he says he's only interested in a move back to Swansea City.

He averaged a goal every 2 games when he was here before - hopefully we'll soon hear news of his loan signing and that he can re-produce that superb goalscoring form with us again until May at least.
