Priskin: I Want to Leave Town
Monday, 12th Sep 2011 13:19
Striker Tamás Priskin says he wants to go on loan to a team where he will play regularly and leave the Blues permanently either in January or at the end of the season. The Hungarian, a £1.7 million buy from Watford in the summer of 2009, has yet to feature for Town this season.
Speaking to the Hungarian media, the 24-year-old said: "I enjoy my role in the Hungarian national team, I recorded an assist against Sweden but my situation is not the same at Ipswich.
"I don't think I'll be in the squad for our next game and I'm sure I won't play. Simply, they don't rely on me. I don't get the chance from Paul Jewell, I'm in his bad books.
"Fortunately my contract will expire in [June] 2012, so I can sign to anywhere next summer. I'm sure this is my last season here, I don't want to stay.
"It would be great to go on loan to a team where I can play regularly, this would be the most important thing for me at the moment. Then I'll see in January, I'll go to another club if I get the possibility."
Priskin, who was close to joining Leeds on loan last month before the Elland Road club pulled out at the last minute, says he’d like to stay in England, but dismisses claims he was near to signing for ex-loan club Swansea earlier in the summer: "Germany or Holland are attractive for me but the country and the football I really like is here in England.
"I like and have got used to this atmosphere and it would be a dream to play in the Premier League again.
"I've heard that I had been linked with Swansea but I hadn't received a concrete offer and they bought two strikers."
The frontman has made 34 starts and 24 sub appearances for the Blues, scoring nine goals. While with Town the Slovakia-born striker has spent time on loan at QPR in addition to last season's spell at Swansea.
