FOLLOWING reports on Friday that Ipswich Town goalkeeper Richard Wright will be sold by the club if he does not agree a new deal this summer, his agent has revealed that it is likely that he will leave Portman Road.

Ipswich manager George Burley has said that, should he refuse an extension offer later this summer, he will be sold before the end of his contract in June 2001.

The likelihood of England's reserve team goalkeeper (pictured, during his international debut last Saturday against Malta) leaving seems to have been increased following new comments made by his agent Jonathan Barnett.

"Ipswich will have to at least quadruple Wright's money if he is to even think about staying beyond the end of next season," said Barnett.

"He wants European football and to do that he will have to sign for one of the top clubs in England or move abroad."

Wright will have talks about his future with Ipswich on his return from Euro 2000, but Celtic and a number of top Premiership clubs have already been linked with a player who will cost around £6 million.
