Clarets lead Scotland pursuit

25 June 2009 10:08
Burnley remain the only club to lodge their interest in Swansea City striker Jason Scotland claim the Championship club. The Clarets have made a tentative enquiry for the 30-year-old Trinidad & Tobago international in recent days. Subsequent reports claimed that Wigan Athletic had joined the race for the prolific striker, but Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins claims that the only interest he is aware of is from the newly-promoted Premier League side. "We have still had no written offer from any club for Jason Scotland and not even verbal interest from Wigan," he revealed. "I have had no conversation from anyone at Wigan for the last four or five days. We have had interest from Burnley, but no written offer. "Jason is back next week and his first job will be to meet our new manager." Scotland was the Championship club's 24-goal top scorer last season and the Clarets have tabled a bid in excess of £1million.
