Southampton extend deal for West Ham keeper Wright
And with regular number one Kelvin Davis still sidelined with a dislocated finger, Wright is needed more than ever as the Saints look to avoid the drop to League One.
Manager Nigel Pearson told the club's official website: "I am delighted Richard is able to stay until the end of the season. He has done well for us and has enjoyed his football.
"He has made some outstanding saves and has looked confident and composed and he had been a big presence for us while Kelvin has been sidelined."
