Wright open to Cambridge switch

Danny Wright
Wright has been with Histon for three and a half years

Out-of-contract Histon striker Danny Wright has refused to rule out a possible move to Cambridge United.

The 24-year-old has turned down the offer of a new deal at the Glass World and has been repeatedly linked with a move to the Abbey.

Wright told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "Cambridge would have everything I'm asking for in terms of full-time football and location.

"I'm not going to rule out signing for Cambridge. We'll have to wait and see."

Wright signed for Histon from Norfolk side Dereham in the spring of 2007 and finished this season as the club's top scorer.

He was frozen out of the first team after refusing to sign a new contract, but subsequently reinstated.

After a season of off-field dramas, the Stutes needed a point against Barrow on the final day of the season to help them beat the drop.

"With the squad we had we should have avoiding relegation more easily than we did, but hopefully they will stabilise next season," Wright said.

"There was a lot of disruption, but as much as we could we had to try and turn a blind eye to it all," he said.

Cambridge boss Martin Ling is a known admirer of Wright, while former Histon chairman Gareth Baldwin is now involved at the Abbey.

Ling is on the search for forward reinforcements after releasing Lee Phillips and Callum Willock.

"We've got two smaller forwards and for me we need a bigger forward in the building so getting strikers in is a priority," Ling said.
