Jason Scotland seals Wigan switch

Topics

Wigan Athletic have completed the signing of Jason Scotland from Swansea City for two million pounds after the Trinidad and Tobago striker received international clearance, the club said on Saturday. The 30-year-old signed a two-year deal and told Wigan's website: "It's great to get to play in the Premier League. It's a big step up. "Hopefully I can take it in my stride and do well. Just thinking about lining up against some of the best players in the world makes me smile." Scotland teams up again with Roberto Martinez, his manager at Swansea who moved to take over at Wigan following the departure of Steve Bruce to Sunderland. He scored 24 goals for Swansea last season as the Welsh club enjoyed a mid-table finish in the Championship having won promotion the previous season. The deal is good business for Swansea as they paid only 25,000 pounds to Scottish side St. Johnstone for him two years ago.
