Ipswich Seek Swansea City Transfer Embargo

Ipswich Seek Swansea City Transfer Embargo

The Ipswich chairman Simon Clegg has reported Swansea City to the Premier League for breaking a legally binding agreement regarding the wage payments for Ipswich's Tomas Priskin.

Simon Clegg has decided to take action over non-payments of invoices relating to Priskin's loan switch to the Liberty Stadium towards the end of Swansea City's Successful 2010-2011 Championship campaign. Ipswich Town claim to have an agreement in place with Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins to cover Priskin's wages up to the 31st May, which would include cumalative payments for each stage of the Championship Playoff's.

On the official Ipswich Town website Clegg Commented by saying:

'I am hugely disappointed that a legally binding agreement reached in good faith by both clubs as part of Swansea's final push for promotion is now being disputed.

'I am genuinely delighted for Swansea City and their fans but the attempted re-negotiation and deliberate misinterpretation of agreed terms by their chairman is not fitting for a club which has just secured the ultimate prize in Championship football and with it a £90million windfall.

'Tamas arrived in Swansea fit and became injured whilst under their care. That's football, but contracts have to be honoured and I have absolutely no interest in re-negotiating the agreement.

'As a result of Swansea refusing to pay our invoices, I have reported them to the Premier League, sought an immediate transfer embargo and am now seeking full payment of all outstanding sums with the agreed contractual interest rate of 5 per cent above base.'


The Premier league confirmed receipt of the complaint on Friday 24th June:

'Ipswich Town contacted the Premier League today and we will refer this to our board at the first opportunity,' read a statement.

Swansea City Chairman Huw Jenkins responded by claiming to be 'Completely Unaware of Any Dispute' and has gone on record to say that he hopes to resolve the situation 'Before it Gets Out Of Hand'.

On the official Swansea City website, Jenkins released this statement:

'In response to the Ipswich Town statement, as a club we are completely unaware of any dispute with Ipswich.

'Myself and Simon Clegg talked a few weeks ago regarding the situation of Tamas Priskin returning early from his loan spell, but there has been no correspondence since.

'While we are surprised and disappointed with Simon's statement, we will address the situation and speak to him and Ipswich early next week.'


Considering that Priskin returned to Ipswich Town on the 22nd of April through injury, it's easy to see where some confusion may reside in the contractual situation, but jumping the gun by reporting Swansea City to the Premier League appears to be drastic to say the least. Maybe a simple call to Swansea City FC have sufficed.

I agree, don't know why Clegg is making such a fuss other that to get his name known. What a prat, I'm sure that if money is owed then Huw will address this issue with professional dignity which is more that I can say about Clegg, what a Prat!
