Swansea City complete loan deal for Tamas Priskin

Tamas Priskin has previously worked under Swans boss Brendan Rodgers

Swansea City have signed striker Tamas Priskin on loan from Ipswich Town until the end of the season

The 24-year-old Hungarian international has scored seven goals for the Tractor Boys this season.

Priskin struck 14 times for Watford in the 2008/09 season when now Swans boss Brendan Rodgers was in charge.

Swansea have already bolstered their strike force with Chelsea's Fabio Borini who scored twice on his debut in the 3-2 win over Nottingham Forest.

"I looked to bring him in at the start of the season," Rodgers told Swansea's official website. "But it's only now that he's become available.

"I worked with Tamas at Watford where he was outstanding for me and at 6ft 2in he can offer us another threat and balance for the remaining games.

"He is a player who can add goals to our squad and ensure we have enough cover for the final eight games of the season."

Under the terms of his loan move, Priskin will not be permitted to play against Ipswich when the two teams meet at the Liberty Stadium on 25 April.

He is currently on international duty with Hungary and preparing for two Euro 2012 qualifiers against the Netherlands.
