Jason Scotland set to leave Wigan


Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez has confirmed that Ipswich Town are interested in signing striker Jason Scotland.

The 31-year-old Trinidad & Tobago international frontman struggled to make his mark during his first season with the Latics, scoring just twice in 36 appearances – 18 of which came as a substitute.

Martinez told the Evening Post:"It's not the first time that a few clubs have been in for one of our players. We'll see what happens.

"It's fair to say there is strong interest there from Ipswich Town and a few other clubs have also asked us about Jason.

"It's just a case now of sitting down with all the parties and working out what is the best move for Wigan Athletic."

Scotland joined the Latics for £2million from Swansea City, having scored 53 goals in 105 outings for the South Wales club.
