Scotland Confirms He Wants To Return

Scotland Confirms He Wants To Return

Jason Scotland has confirmed the recent speculation that he wants to return to Swansea City on loan for the rest of the season.

The striker wants to leave Ipswich Town as he's not playing regular first team football at Portman Road, and the former Swan says the only team he wants to join on loan is Swansea City.

The 31 year-old spent two successful seasons at the Liberty Stadium, but he decided to leave 18 months ago to play in the Premier League with Wigan Athletic. He struggled to impress in the top flight and joined Ipswich for a £750,000 fee.

Scotland has had talks with new Ipswich boss Paul Jewell and he has had permission to leave the club on loan after he told them that he wished to go out and gain more regular football.

Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins says he is unaware of any contact being made with Ipswich about a possible move for Scotland, but the forward is hopeful that they are interested in signing him:

'I went to Ipswich to play football and I'm not doing that,'

'I am at that point in my career when I need to be playing, not sitting on the bench.

'The new manager has come in and I have not had a chance, but I feel I have a lot to contribute.

'I had a word with him and he is happy to let me go.

'If Swansea are interested in me it would be great. I enjoyed the best time of my career there and it would be an easy decision for me.'


Scotland also believes that he would score regularly for the Swans if he was to make a return:

'I have seen Swansea play a few times this season,'

'The squad is almost the same and the style of football is perfect — that is the style that suits me best.

'I have made 19 starts this season and I've done well — I know I would score goals there because of the style Swansea play.

'Swansea are looking very strong again this season.

'Automatic promotion should still be the target — Swansea have a big chance of achieving that.

'If Swansea come calling then it would be an easy decision. I'm not interested in going to any other club.

'It's up to Swansea now to speak to Ipswich and make something happen.'
