DAVID Wright has been officially unveiled as an Ipswich Town player and immediately vowed to make a swift return to the Premiership.

The defender completed his three-and-a-half year move from Wigan for an undisclosed sum, believed to be in the region of £250,000 flanked by manager Jim Magilton and chief executive Derek Bowden.

Wright said: “I was not really playing week in week out and as a footballer you want to be playing every game. Leaving the Premiership was hard but after I spoke with the manager and the chairman here at Ipswich and heard about their ambition I was excited and felt if I was going to leave then this was the right club to come to.

“They want Premiership football and that matches my ambition to go back.”

Magilton said: “If I could have identified a right back from the start it would have been David Wright. “We weren't sure of his availability before but as soon as we became aware then we acted quickly and it has all been done in a few days.”

Mr Bowden said: “This signals the board's intention to support Jim and further strengthen the squad in this window as we look forward to the second half of the season.

“Hopefully there will me more to come in the coming days and as we have said before we have no reason to sell any players.”
