West Ham's Wright Remains a Saint

West Ham goalkeeper Richard Wright has had his loan deal with Southampton extended until the end of the season. Wright has conceded just two goals in four games at the Saints and with first choice goalie Kelvin Davis out with a dislocated finger Southampton have moved to ensure Wright stays for the rest of the season.

Southampton manager Nigel Pearson says,

"He (Wright) has made some outstanding saves and has looked confident and composed and he has been a big presence for us while Kelvin is sidelined. I am delighted Richard is able to stay with us until the end of the season. He has done well for us and has enjoyed his football."

agree-this way he maintains his sharpness. he s a good keeper and it s better that he be playing regularly somewhere. This is probably what we shud have done much earlier in the season with kyle reid.
