Sevilla sporting director Víctor Orta has revealed that a Scottish club looked to do a deal for winger Adnan Januzaj in January.

The former Manchester United man has fallen out of favour at the La Liga club recently and they are looking to offload him from the wage bill.

Orta has now explained how there was plenty of interest in Januzaj during the window, including a bid from the Scottish Premiership, but nothing could be agreed.

He explained: "What about Januzaj is a question that has to be asked of the player. We have received up to six offers from other clubs in Scotland, Turkey and France and we accepted two offers but the player was not willing to leave.

"I told him personally that it was good for the club that he left, but the player was not willing to leave. For him it is not a problem to have minutes to develop as a footballer and he accepts that he has a current contract. From there, the debate settled.

"We have always told him what the club's idea was, which was that a player develops by playing and accumulating minutes. If he has another idea, that's him."

It is not clear what Scottish club were in for Januzaj, but given his past record of featuring for clubs like Man United, Borussia Dortmund, Real Sociedad and Sevilla, you would imagine the interest would have come from one of Glasgow's big two.
