Wright back at Ipswich
Monday 21 July 2008
Richard Wright has returned to Ipswich after signing a two-year deal at Portman Road.
The 30-year-old goalkeeper, who left Ipswich for Arsenal in a £6million deal seven years ago, has been snapped up from West Ham for an undisclosed fee.
Ipswich-born Wright worked his way through the ranks at Portman Road and made 291 appearances before stints at Arsenal and Everton.
He joined West Ham at the start of last season, but ended the campaign on loan at Southampton.
Wright was a regular England Under-21 international and was called up 28 times into the senior England squad, winning two caps.
