Jason Scotland signs waiver to end contract concerns

JASON Scotland has agreed to wave his contract clause which forces Ipswich Town to give him a new deal – on the same terms – should he make two more starts.

The striker was in limbo after Blues boss Paul Jewell admitted he could not afford to pick Scotland with the club looking to balance the books for next season.

Under his current contract, the 33-year-old would be automatically entitled to a new one-year deal if he made 19 league starts.

While initially saying it would not come into his team selection, Jewell admitted last week that Scotland would not be picked again – but that he remained hopeful that a new deal, on reduced terms, could be reached.

While negotiations continue, and we understand they have been positive, Jewell confirmed today that Scotland had signed a waiver agreeing that he would not be entitled to a new deal if he made the two or more starts.
