Richard wright: Has joined Ipswich Town for the third time in his career
Ipswich Town have re-signed goalkeeper Richard Wright on a short-term deal until the end of the season.
The 34-year-old began his career at the Championship outfit, coming through the youth ranks before making a £6million move to Arsenal in 2001.
Wright has since had spells with Everton, West Ham and Southampton before re-joining the Tractor Boys in 2008.
The former England international then spent last season at Sheffield United before being released at the end of the campaign.
He will now begin a third spell with Town and could go straight into the squad for their home game with Reading on Saturday.
Town boss Paul Jewell told the club's official website: "Richard has been training with us this season and has done well. He has looked really sharp over the last few weeks.
"I know there were two or three clubs interested in taking him on this week so we've been speaking to him over the last day or so and I'm delighted that we've been able to agree a deal."
Meanwhile Republic of Ireland midfielder Colin Healy has left the club by mutual consent.
Healy joined the club from Cork City in 2009 but has fallen down the pecking order this season, making just one league appearance.
"Colin is a terrific pro but he's not had the first-team football he was looking for this season," added Jewell.
"Agreeing to bring his contract to an end early gives him the opportunity to find himself a new club for the rest of the season and we wish him good luck."
