Wigan accept Ipswich bid for Jason Scotland
Wigan have accepted an offer from Ipswich for striker Jason Scotland.
Wigan boss Roberto Martinez signed Scotland, 31, from his former club Swansea for £2 million a year ago, but he struggled to make an impression, scoring just one goal in the Premier League.
Roy Keane has been keen to take the striker to Portman Road and Martinez has confirmed a bid has been accepted.
"It is a situation where it has been quite public the desire to take Jason; we are going to assess it and see what is best for Wigan and Jason," Martinez said.
"As it is, it is a bit in the air, but unless a deal is finalised he will be in the squad (for Saturday's Premier League opener at home to Blackpool). Conversations have been happening and they will continue today but they won't go any further than tomorrow.
"Tomorrow, before the big game, we need to know what Jason needs. If he is staying here he will be involved in the squad, if not we will wish him the very best because even though it was a frustrating season in the goalscoring department he played a massive part in our aim of retaining Premier League status. We will assess it over the next 24 hours.''
Ipswich are reported to have offered £750,000 for Scotland.
