Jefferson Montero: Ecuador international wants move to England

Jefferson Montero: Ecuador international wants move to England

The Morelia wide-man almost joined Wigan in January, only for the deal to fall through, but he is now hopeful of sealing a move to England.

It is understood a host of clubs are ready to meet his buy-out clause of £3.5million, and a number of scouts from English teams watched him play 90 minutes of Ecuador's World Cup qualifying draw with Argentina earlier this month.

Swansea, West Brom, West Ham and Hull City are all understood to be keen on the 23-year-old, who has already spent time in Europe in La Liga.

"Jefferson is ready to move to England," Dan Chapman of Full Contact confirmed to Sky Sports.

"We can confirm a number of clubs are showing an interest, which is not surprising after his performance against Argentina last week."
