Wig fits for Jason as Swansea accept Martinez bid for striker Scotland

10 July 2009 03:13
Swansea striker Jason Scotland's switch to Wigan has moved a step closer after the two clubs agreed a transfer fee. The Latics lodged an official bid with the Swans on Tuesday and chairman Huw Jenkins said he and the board needed a couple of days to consider it. It has now been accepted and the player will discuss personal terms, although that is unlikely to be a stumbling block. Wigan boss Roberto Martinez already has a close relationship with the Trinidad and Tobago international having managed him at the Liberty Stadium before he moved to Wigan to replace Steve Bruce as manager.
