Joining Swans would be “easy decision” - Scotland

JASON Scotland has given his broadest hint yet that his Ipswich Town days are numbered - claiming that he has Paul Jewell’s blessing to go out on loan.

The Town striker has barely got a look in under new manager Paul Jewell and the 31-year-old admitted he needed to start playing games and that his former club Swansea City would be his preferred destination.

Scotland said: “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 my best time of my career there and it would be an easy decision for me.

“I’m not interested in going to any other club. It’s up to Swansea now to speak to Ipswich and make something happen.”

A loan move for Scotland, who joined Town on a two-year contract last August and has scored seven goals in 28 appearances, would appear to hinge on Jewell bringing in a new frontman in the first instance.

Scotland is due to play for a strong-looking Town reserves side against Oxford United at Didcot tonight alongside Luciano Civelli, Luke Hyam, Tommy Smith and Colin Healy.
