Ipswich confirm move for West Ham keeper Wright

Ipswich boss Jim Magilton has confirmed he has made an approach for West Ham goalkeeper Richard Wright, who began his career at Portman Road.

Wright, 30, made his name with the Suffolk club before making a £6million move to Arsenal in 2001 but his career has stuttered in recent years and Magilton is keen to resurrect it.

He told the Evening Star: "Richard is a very good goalkeeper and I feel he would be at his best playing for Ipswich Town.

"There is no secret that I wanted him 12 months ago, but it did not happen possibly because something was lost in translation.

"You will have to ask him if he made the right decision to move to West Ham, who were of course in the Premier League.

"An approach has been made but it is early days and if it does not happen then we have other irons in the fire."
