Scotland left Swansea in 2009 to join Wigan Athletic and, after a disappointing time in the Premier League, linked up with Ipswich in August.

He has scored seven goals in 22 Championship appearances this season, but his future at Portman Road is uncertain following Paul Jewell's appointment as manager.

Swans boss Rodgers is keen to sign a forward before the close of the transfer window and would not rule out a move for Trinidad & Tobago international Scotland.


"He is someone who had two fantastic years here and scored a lot of goals," said Rodgers in the Evening Post. "Everyone knows Jason's qualities and if he became available for a loan we would have to consider it.

"There was a possibility to buy him in the summer, but we didn't have that sort of money and there were other things we needed to look at at the time at the club.

"But he is certainly a player that could be interesting.

"I don't know what the situation is with him because I've not asked the question.

"Maybe it's a case that he wants to play, but I've not spoken to anyone and he's an Ipswich player."
