Mr Reliable David Wright has waved goodbye to Portman Road, but admits that he didn’t achieve everything he wanted to in his time with Ipswich.

Manager Roy Keane opted not to renew the right-back’s current deal that expires at the end of June, ending the 30-year-olds stay with the Blues.

David, although disappointed at his departure, admitted to the club that he wanted to be playing in the Premiership with Town and regrets not achieving promotion. He told the club site: ‘I’ve had three fantastic years here and some great memories in that time.

‘I’ve enjoyed a good relationship with the fans and been lucky enough to have had their support and I want to thank them for that.

‘I came here to help Ipswich get in the Premier League though so there is that sense of disappointment that I have not achieved that.’

There are sure to be plenty of clubs interested in such a consistent and versatile full back, including.. gulp.. Norwich. Surely he won’t betray us!?

Wrighty added that he was looking to sort out his future as soon as: ‘I’ve got to think about the future now though. I’d like to find a club as soon as possible so that I can get my family settled before the new season gets underway.’
