Blues and Sunderland Linked With Aberdeen Forward Wright
Friday, 23rd Aug 2019 23:37
Town and Sunderland have been linked with a move for Aberdeen forward Scott Wright.
According to the Scottish Sun, the Blues and Black Cats are both eyeing the 22-year-old with the Dons said to value the Scotland U21 international, who is contracted until 2021, at £500,000.
It’s claimed the Blues made a move for Wright, who can play down the middle, out wide or as a number 10, last season and have now renewed their interest while the Wearsiders are also keen.
Wright came through the youth system at his hometown club before breaking into the first team in 2014. He spent the second half of last season on loan at Dundee.
Having added Will Keane to the squad earlier in the week, it would be a surprise if Town were to move for another frontman, certainly one who would cost a fee.
However, speaking this morning, manager Paul Lambert didn’t entirely rule out making a further addition before the transfer window closes on September 2nd.
“If people come up and I think it’s going to benefit the team and the club, then we’ll look at it,” he said. “We’ve still got another few days to go.”

The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).
