Ipswich boss Paul Jewell is pleased Jason Scotland's proposed move to Blackpool fell through.

The striker was given permission to talk to the Tractor Boys' Championship rivals but Scotland opted to stay at Portman Road after failing to agree personal terms with the Tangerines.

"Blackpool made an enquiry and we gave them permission to speak to Jason," Jewell told Ipswich's official website. "They spoke to his agent but they couldn't agree personal terms. I'm quite happy to keep Jason here."

He added: "He scored against Leeds and made the winner.

"I don't have to move anyone out of the door but I think we have to be fair on people and that's why we gave Jason permission to talk to Blackpool.

"Jason knows that and I spoke to him about it.

"There's no problem and we move on."
