I’m in Jewell’s bad books – Priskin

TAMAS Priskin has admitted he wants to leave Ipswich Town – claiming he is in manager Paul Jewell’s “bad books”.

The 24-year-old has yet to make a single appearance for the Blues this season – not even on the bench for the Carling Cup defeat against Northampton Town.

Now he has publicly vented his frustration to Hungarian daily newspaper Nemzeti Sport claiming he is looking to leave Portman Road as soon as possible.

The striker said: “I enjoy my role at the Hungarian national team, I gave an assist against Sweden (in the recent Euro 2012 qualifier) but my situation is not like this at Ipswich.

“I don’t think I’ll be in the squad in 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.

“I’m sure this is my last season here, I don’t want to stay. Fortunately my contract will expire in 2012 so I can sign to anywhere next summer.

“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.”

And while not ruling out a move abroad, Priskin, who was on loan at Swansea City last season, has expressed a desire to remain in England if possible.

He added: “I would like to stay abroad. Germany or Holland are attractive for me but the country and the football I really like is here in England.

“I like and I got used to this atmosphere, 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 - but they bought two strikers.”

Town boss Paul Jewell last month admitted that he gave his permission for Priskin to join divisional rivals Leeds United on loan, but the Elland Road club backtracked on the deal at the last minute./
