Swans approach Town over striker

SWANSEA City manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed the club has made an approach to sign Ipswich striker Jason Scotland on loan.

The Town forward has made no secret of the fact he is unhappy with the lack of opportunities he has had under Paul Jewell - issuing a come and get me plea to his former club this week.

Now the Swans have finally admitted their interest publicly, although any deal still appears to hinge on Ipswich bringing in a new striker first.

Rodgers told the Evening Post in Wales: “I have had a conversation with Paul Jewell and our chairman has had a chat with their chief executive Simon Clegg.

“There is a deal there to be done, and we have put a proposal to them. We are now waiting to hear back from them to see what they think. We hope we can come to an agreement because Jason is a player who has proved himself capable of scoring goals at this level and for this club.”
