West Ham sign goalkeeper Wright

Wright left Everton at the end of last season
West Ham United have signed goalkeeper Richard Wright on a free transfer after he left Everton.

The 29-year-old former Ipswich Town and Arsenal stopper becomes Hammers' boss Alan Curbishley's third summer arrival.

Wright made 71 appearances for the Toffees after signing for 3.5m in July 2002, but his time at Goodison Park was blighted by injuries.

The goalkeeper, who has made two appearances for England, played just twice for Everton last season.

Wright impressed during his early career at Ipswich and earned a 6m move to Arsenal in the summer of 2001.

But he made just 22 league and cup appearances for the Gunners before moving to Everton.

West Ham have already signed England midfielder Scott Parker from Newcastle for 7m and French international Julien Faubert in a 6.1m deal from Bordeaux.

They are also set to sell Nigel Reo-Coker to Aston Villa for 8.5m.
