|Swansea's Promotion Good News for Town|
Tuesday, 31st May 2011 01:55
Swansea’s promotion to the Premier League via their 4-2 Wembley victory over Reading on Monday will see the Blues’ coffers swelled by more than £100,000 via a clause in Tamás Priskin’s loan deal.
The Hungarian international joined the Swans on loan until the end of the season in March and despite the 24-year-old picking up a knee injury which ruled him out of the play-offs, the Welsh club’s elevation to the top flight for the first time since 1983 has triggered a £160,000 payment to Town.
After Swansea had beaten the Blues towards the end of the season, Swans boss Brendan Rodgers said he had been pleased with Priskin’s performances and didn't rule out making his move a permanent one, however, their promotion probably makes this less likely.
Meanwhile, Town continue to be linked with a £1 million move for Cardiff City striker Michael Chopra as part of a summer cost-cutting exercise in the wake of the Bluebirds' failure to reach the Premier League.

Good News having that extra 100k... Not so good that Tamas wont have an easy move on the cards... Although i still feel he has potential, which unfortunately hasnt come through just yet lol.
I hope this constant linking with Chopra amounts to something one of these days!
Lets get a few signings in!!
In Paul Jewell We Trust (IPJWT)

This is by far the most Priskin has ever contributed to ITFC.
|DiamondGezzer added 06:26 - May 31|
I don't just find the lack of goals [ sitters ] Priskin doesn't score that annoy me, its his disinterest and general laziness in most matches that gets my goat. I'm sure my goat would try a lot harder than he does, without Priskins paypacket ! Great shame, the ability is there, he just doesn't use it very often.
|Blue_Fred added 07:14 - May 31|
be much better news if they bought him!! Give them Scotland in a BOGOF deal...
I also was wondering if Pablo regrets any decisions he made................
|radiogaga added 07:48 - May 31|
Blue Badger - I can't remember who scored Town's goal when they beat Arsenal 1-0 at PR in January, can you though?
|cvillageblue added 07:52 - May 31|
I think it'll make the move more likely as Swansea wouldn't have paid his wages in the long term in the championship.
|Karlosfandangal added 07:54 - May 31|
That's the second 100k we have made
we must be saving a 100k in wages with the amount of players that have left
worried for next season as we had a small squard PJ said he needed 5 or6 players more like 9 or 10
|UsualSuspect added 08:16 - May 31|
Swansea won't be wanting Priskin on a permanant deal now, I should imagine they'll be setting their sights ever so slightly higher.
Good bit of business by the club though, well done Clegg.

100k! Don't go and spend it all at once!
|jas0999 added 08:40 - May 31|
Good news - but will we actually spend it? Can't see Tamas moving on this Summer. Swansea are unlikely to want him.
|itfc1981 added 08:40 - May 31|
no real gain at all!
As we lose out on the same amount in compensation for Brown.
Nice wok Clegg!
Learn the rules!
|pazelle added 09:02 - May 31|
Tamas Priskin in a 442 will be a useful player next season. A player up top on his own getting it pumped at him won't score that many in fact i cant think of one example.
But if we're 442 next season and Tamas is still here it's a good thing!
|TractorCam added 09:21 - May 31|
OH YES, Every penny counts!
You not saying 4-4-2 with Priskin & Adu are you Pazelle?
|pazelle added 09:34 - May 31|
2 from Priskin, Wickham, Rhodes and Adu
Well happy with that
|dirtydingusmagee added 09:39 - May 31|
radiogaga, if it was a goal against any other team would you rattle on about it,Arsenal SO WHAT !Priskin needs a good kick up the a;se,and or shipping out .
|algarvefan added 09:43 - May 31|
Well done the Swans on their promotion, deserved... playing football the right way.No one up front nonsense, wingers, running with the ball.... good stuff... hint hint Mr Jewell....
|UsualSuspect added 09:50 - May 31|
Nice wok Cegg?
Must be taking tips from Delia, if all else fails celebrity chef stardom beckons.
|Karlosfandangal added 09:57 - May 31|
Priskin has scored 9 goals in 60 games
we could play 10 up front and Priskin still would not be the 20 a season man
how many did he get at Swansea and QPR and at Watford he had a poor record too
expencive player we do not really need sell cheap and use his 10 to 15k wages on a Sharpe or Maynard or MKS or as PJ said someone who will kick their granny to score
|robdaful added 10:27 - May 31|
They have enough money to buy him and didn't Rodgers first bring Priskin to England to play in the Prem for Watford?
|Upbeat~ added 12:26 - May 31|
Good stuff Tamas!
IPJWT - just rolls of the tongue.
|radiogaga added 14:01 - May 31|
Magee: So his goal against Arsenal didn't mean anything to you that night then? Because it was Priskin? Don't beleive you. Priskin had a bad first season, but the first half of last season before he was dropped by Keane, he was brilliant and did it all on his own without barely any support from midfield. He hasn't set the world alight but I'm just saying also, people who write on here that he never contributed anything positive to ITFC are being a little bit short sighted...
|AmberAndBlack added 19:12 - May 31|
£100,000 ! That would pay Jimmy Bullard for two whole weeks!!
Another 56 deals like that and you can afford to buy out his contract!!!!
|Handsome_Lizard added 19:26 - May 31|
That will help pay for all the breakfasts at Kesgrave Kitchens!
