Released Ipswich Town goalkeeper Richard Wright hopes to get his return to West Ham United.

The former England No 1 is wanted at Upton Park as cover for England international Rob Green.

He said: "I still believe I can play at the highest level and know I can get back there. There has been a lot of interest but nothing concrete.

"My plan when I came back to Ipswich was to get back into the Premier League. I was dropping down to a club who were heading in the right direction, but it doesn't always work out.

"Hopefully, it will be a fresh start and exciting times for me. I believe in my own ability.

"It has been a frustrating year because of injury but I cannot wait for a new challenge."
