Latics launch Scotland move

07 July 2009 04:34
Wigan Athletic have tabled an offer for prolific Swansea City striker Jason Scotland. Latics boss Roberto Martinez has returned to his former club in an attempt to sign a player who scored 24 goals in the Championship last season. The 30-year-old Trinidad & Tobago international has already been the subject of one unsuccessful bid from newly-promoted Premier League side Burnley so far this summer. "We have had firm interest from Wigan," revealed Swans chairman Huw Jenkins. "But as yet, nobody has met our valuation for Jason Scotland or any other one of our players. "I have had numerous conversations with a variety of clubs about a variety of things. That is the case all day, every day." Scotland's future at the Liberty Stadium has been the subject of much speculation in recent weeks. The striker has not travelled with the rest of the squad to a pre-season training camp to Portugal, although the club claim he is currently nursing a groin injury.
