Skysports.com understands that Ipswich Town are in talks to sign Wigan defender David Wright.
The former Crewe Alexandra man has made 12 appearances in the Premiership this season but is now poised to join the Championship side on a permanent deal.
Wright will undergo a medical at Portman Road after being allowed to leave The JJB Stadium by Latics boss Paul Jewell.
A deal could be completed in the coming days as Ipswich boss Jim Magilton looks to improve the quality at his disposal during the January transfer window.
Wright played on loan with Town's local rivals Norwich in 2005 but is now poised to move to Portman Road.
