SWANSEA City boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed that Tamas Priskin’s season is over, because of a knee injury.

The Hungarian striker, who has been on loan at the Liberty Stadium, will therefore return to Ipswich Town.

And Rodgers has not yet given it any thought as to whether he will be trying to sign Priskin on a permanent deal this summer.

“Tamas has had the results of his scans, which suggest he will be out for four to six weeks,” said Rodgers, following his side’s 4-1 home win over Town this afternoon.

“That means he will be out until late May, which would mean he would struggle to even make a play-off final.

“Naturally he’s disappointed because he has done well since he’s been here,” added Rodgers.

Town boss Paul Jewell confirmed: “Tamas came to the hotel last night with the results of his scan.

“The priority will now be to get him fit for next season.”

As regards today’s heavy defeat, Jewell said: “It’s been a tough Easter for us. It couldn’t have been any worse for us results-wise.

“I’m just grateful that we have already got enough points, otherwise it could have been a sticky finish to the season.”
