Ipswich Town boss Paul Jewell couldn't quite believe Huw Jenkins' recent comments that he wasn't aware of any contact made with them regarding Jason Scotland and a possible loan move to the Liberty Stadium.
The Swansea City chairman said last Wednesday that no contact had been made between themselves and the Tractor Boys, but the previous day Brendan Rodgers had a conversation with Jewell about the possibility of signing the former Swansea striker - this was revealed on the Thursday.
This is not the first time that something like this has happened regarding Huw Jenkins and his comments to the media. He's been known before to say something one day, and the following day the complete opposite is being reported.
Paul Jewell joked that Huw Jenkins must have a communication problem, or memory loss for saying he'd had no contact with the fellow Championship club last week.
Jewell says Scotland will stay at Portman Road unless Swansea City improve their loan offer for the striker:
'You had better to speak to Huw Jenkins because I think he has a communication problem,'
'Apparently he hasn't spoken to me, but he has, so he must have memory loss!
'There's nothing going on there as far as I'm concerned.
'They (Swansea) came back with an offer that wasn't good enough and I'm quite happy to keep Jason here.
'He is our player and, unless something else happens, I expect him to continue in this professional manner.'
Huw Jenkins also said nothing has developed in our attempts to sign the frontman, who scored in Ipswich's 1-1 draw against Barnsley on Saturday:
'Brendan had some tentative chats with Ipswich to see if something could be done, but nothing has moved on from there,'
'If you ask Brendan, he will tell you that he has been looking at a few options aimed at bringing in one or two new faces in to help us over the next few months.
'But what is most important is keeping the current squad together and happy and making sure everyone is concentrating 100 per cent on the games we have ahead.'
