Scowy Summer Return?
Scowy Summer Return?
Tuesday, 8th Feb 2005 11:42

TWTD understands that former striker James Scowcroft is keen on a summer return to Town. The 29-year-old's Leicester City contract is up at the end of the season and the ex-England U21 international will be available on a Bosman free transfer.

Scowcroft joined the Foxes from Town in the summer of 2001 for a fee of £3.5 million after making 248 appearances for the Blues and scoring 55 goals. He made his Town debut against Wolves in 1995 after progressing through the youth ranks.

Leicester, in mid-table and outsiders for promotion, look all but certain to lose the frontman at the end of the season and we understand that a return to Portman Road would be Scowcroft's favoured move, although Town being promoted back to the Premiership may be a factor in any potential deal.

Boss Joe Royle has long been a fan of Scowcroft, having made an enquiry about him during his time as Manchester City manager. Royle asked about his availability again last summer but at the time Town's finances made signing him impossible.

Fans are likely to welcome Scowcroft's return, many having been unhappy that he was allowed to leave after helping George Burley's side to promotion and then into Europe.
