A report from the Daily Record last week revealed that Championship promotion hunting trio Leeds United, Norwich City and West Brom were all keen on Motherwell winger Jake Hastie. Now, the Scot has said he wants to stay with his current club.
Amid reported interest from Championship trio Leeds United, Norwich City and West Brom, Motherwell winger Jake Hastie has said that he does not want to go anywhere and is keen to sign a new deal with the Scottish club.
Hastie’s contract at Fir Park expires at the end of the season and his eye-catching displays have caught the eyes of potential suitors. Scouts from Leeds, Norwich, West Brom, Swansea and Sunderland watched the 20-year-old in a 2-1 win over St Mirren.
However, Hastie is keen to remain at Motherwell, he has told the BBC.
“I don’t want to go anywhere. I want to stay here, keep my feet on the ground and keep progressing.
“I’ve been lucky to come in straight away. Hopefully, I can keep doing what I’m doing.”
20-year-old Hastie has impressed recently at Fir Park with Motherwell. Prior to the New Year, the youngster had only played three times for The Well. After his explosive rise into the first team, his performances have been catching the eyes of clubs South of the border.
The Scot has starred in Motherwell’s side in recent weeks, winning five games from their last five. In five league games, Hastie has picked up four goals and an assist after returning from his loan spell with Scottish Championship club Alloa Athletic, where he scored three goals and provided four assists in 23 games.
He spent last season on loan with Scottish League One side Airdrieonians, picking up four goals and six assists in 32 games as he helped them finish in 7th place.
