Ipswich Want Swansea Transfer Ban

Ipswich Town have reported Swansea to the Premier League for payments relating to Tamas Priskin's loan
Ipswich believe that they are owed money for the remaining term of Priskin's loan despite him returning to Portman Road after becoming injured on April 22.
The loan agreement made provision for Swansea City to pay for Priskin's wages up to 31st May 2011 even though he became injured whilst at Swansea on 22nd April. Furthermore, the contract provided for cumulative payments for each stage of the Play Off competition.
Commenting on the situation, Simon Clegg Town's Chief Executive told their official website "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% above base."
