Town’s Scotland offer accepted
WIGAN have confirmed they have accepted an offer from Ipswich for striker Jason Scotland - but the Blues face a battle with two other clubs to secure his signature.
Town, unbeaten so far this season, have previously been linked with Cardiff hitman Michael Chopra and Leicester City’s Matty Fryatt in a long search for a big name striker.
Today it emerged that Wigan have accepted an offer from Ipswich for the Trinidad and Tobago hitman, but two other Championship clubs are also in the running.
Wigan manager Roberto Martinez said: “There has been a bid accepted from Ipswich but another two Championship clubs have asked about Jason,”
“Jason will make a decision in the next 24 hours and we will take it from there.’’
Scotland has struggled at Wigan since moving to the Premier League club from Swansea, scoring just twice in 36 games.
However, he made his name as a prolific striker for the Welsh team at Championship level, netting 45 times in 90 appearances.
