Iriekpen off the list
21 Feb 2007 - 07:22:18
Swansea City defender Izzy Iriekpen has withdrawn his transfer request after battling his way back into the first-team picture at the Liberty Stadium.
The 24-year-old asked to go on the transfer list last month "for pure footballing reasons'' after growing frustrated at his lack of first-team starts.
The former West Ham United trainee was a regular on the substitute's bench from mid-November until recently, but has started the last three games against Oldham Athletic, Doncaster Rovers and Scunthorpe United.
Iriekpen will be a free agent in the summer when his contract expires.
