Scotland all set for Tractor Boys

The Wigan Athletic striker is on Roy Keane’s radar with the Tractor

Boys boss keen to bolster his attacking options before the end of

the month. And it seems the Championship outfit, who dispatched

promotion favourites Middlesbrough on the opening weekend of the

season, are set to land the 31-year-old forward after agreeing a

£1million fee for the former Swansea City man. Scotland

endured a torrid first season in the Premier League last year after

following former Swans boss Roberto Martinez to the DW Stadium. The

Trinidad and Tobago international found the net just twice in 36

appearances for the Latics and Martinez appears ready to part ways

with the powerful marksman. It is thought Scotland, who had one

year remaining on his current deal with Wigan, will complete the

move to Portman Road in the next 48 hours. The ex-Dundee United and

St Johnstone forward could be available for Ipswich’s next fixture

against Exeter in the Carling Cup on Tuesday if a deal can be tied

up in the coming days.
