RICHARD Wright is poised to rejoin Ipswich Town.
The Everton keeper, who was on the bench for their 4-2 defeat against Manchester United, has been told he will not be offered a new deal at Goodison Park and will become a free agent in the summer.
Although a number of clubs are interested in the former England keeper, it is understood he favours a return to Portman Road.

He said: “We are aware that Richard will be available in the summer. He is a player that will always be linked with Ipswich because of his close connections with the club.”
Wright has been on decent Premiership wages, believed to be around £20,000 a week, so would have to take a massive pay cut.
