Sheffield Wednesday declare interest in Scotland

Sheffield Wednesday have confirmed they are looking to sign Ipswich striker Jason Scotland.

The League One side have made their interest public with owner Milan Mandaric telling the Sheffield Star: “We are interested in him (Scotland) and we are trying to see what can be done.”

It comes as initial reports that Brighton are monitoring the situation were cooled somewhat.

When quizzed about Scotland, Seagulls boss Gus Poyet said: “We are looking in all divisions for players but the way we play makes it more difficult.

“We can’t just sign a player by position. There might be 15 or 20 players out there for one position and of those maybe two or three who we think will adapt to the way we play.

“Then those two or three will have different clubs after them so it can really become difficult.”

Scotland’s days at Portman Road could be numbered after Paul Jewell brought in striking duo Michael Chopra and Nathan Ellington in the last two weeks.

Coppinger was subject to a bid of �300,000 from Ipswich in May and it is believed Jewell is considering upping his offer.
