Richard Wright: Goalkeeper will be leaving Ipswich but wants to continue his playing career
Veteran goalkeeper Richard Wright wants to continue his playing career after confirming he will not be offered a new contract at Ipswich Town.
Wright returned for a third spell at Portman Road last summer, but the 34-year-old has made just one Championship appearance this season.
Town boss Paul Jewell will not be offering Wright an extension, but the keeper is keen to find a new club for next term.
"I had a chat with the gaffer and we talked about my ambitions and I told him they were simple - I want to carry on playing," Wright told the club's official website.
"I feel as fit as I've ever done. I've worked hard in training and I want to play matches.
"The gaffer has said that he couldn't offer me anything and I understand that. Now it's down to me to win a contract elsewhere because I want to carry on playing."
Wright started his career with Ipswich and, during his three stints with the club, he has made over 360 appearances.
