Clegg: Swansea dispute has been settled

IPSWICH Town chief executive Simon Clegg has released a statement confirming a financial dispute with Swansea City – over unpaid money from the Tamas Priskin loan deal – has been resolved in the Blues’ favour.

The two clubs became embroiled in an unsavoury row over the Hungarian striker with Town claiming they were owed a reported �160,000 following the Swans’ promotion to the Premiership.

Priskin made just four substitute appearances before suffering a knee injury and returning to Suffolk.

Ipswich chief executive Simon Clegg uncharacteristically went public on the dispute on Friday – voicing his disappointment at the fact Town were still owed money by a club that had just netted a �90 million promotion windfall.

But his counterpart in Swansea, Huw Jenkins, insisted there was no issue with the Suffolk side.
