Scotland: Set for Wigan
Wigan Athletic have confirmed they have agreed a fee with Swansea City for striker Jason Scotland.
Sky Sports News revealed on Thursday an offer in the region of £2million had been accepted by the Swans.
The 30-year-old is set for talks with his former boss Roberto Martinez, who is now in charge at the JJB Stadium, before undergoing a medical.
Scotland signed for Swansea from St Johnstone in 2007 and has netted 45 goals in 90 league appearances since the switch.
The forward is set to become Martinez's third signing since he took over last month after midfielder Jordi Gomez was bought from Espanyol and Honduras international Hendry Thomas arrived from Deportivo Olimpia.
