Ipswich Town manager Paul Jewell has revealed that Leeds United pulled out of a deal to sign Tamas Priskin on loan at the last minute. 

“Tamas was lined up to go to Leeds and at the 11th hour they changed their mind

“It’s disappointing for Tamas and disappointing for us, it would have given him games and put him in the shop window.”

With Luciano Becchio and Davide Somma currently out injured, Leeds United have been left short in the striker department with Ross McCormack playing Leeds’ opening two league games alone up front.

Misfiring Billy Paynter has also had some injury problems which left Simon Grayson in desperate need of alternative options.

Several players have been brought in on trial including former Chelsea striker Mikael Forrsell, whilst The Whites have also been linked to numerous other unattached players and potential loan signings.

But it was Andy Keogh from Wolverhampton Wanderers that came to Leeds’ rescue, signing a loan deal on Monday and going straight into the team for the 4-1 victory over Hull City on Tuesday.

Andy Keogh’s impressive performance against Hull, and the decision to extend Mikael Forrsell’s trial by another week could have been factors in Simon Grayson’s decision not to take Priskin.
