Tamas Priskin signs for second tier Russian team

HUNGARIAN international striker Tamas Priskin has joined Russian second-tier team Alania Vladikavkaz.

Priskin became the fourth Ipswich Town player to have his contract terminated by mutual consent this season last month – following in the footsteps of Colin Healy, Ivar Ingimarsson and Shane O’Connor.

And following a period on trial at Alania he has now put pen-to-paper on a three-and-a-half year deal.

The 25-year-old was brought to Ipswich from Watford by former boss Roy Keane for a fee believed to be around �1.7m. He made just 35 starts in his two-and-a-half seasons at the club, spending time out on loan at QPR, Swansea and Derby.

Priskin only netted nine goals during his time at the Blues, four of them coming in the League Cup including, memorably, the winner in a 1-0 win over Arsenal in the semi-final first leg in January 2011.
