Clarets Target Man City Keeper

Richard Wright Set for Turf Moor Loan

Burnley manager Sean Dyche last week confirmed that the Clarets are looking to sign a goalkeeper on loan after Matt Gilks picked up an elbow injury in training that will rule him out for several weeks.


Before the Clarets last Sky Bet Championship game Matt Gilks suffered an injury setback, which left young Aussie Danijel Nizic on the bench against Brentford and Sean Dyche is looking to bring in some more experienced cover.

Burnley Football Club have this morning been linked with Manchester City goalkeeper Richard Wright with the former England keeper expected to join the Clarets on a one month loan deal.


Wright has made 270 league appearances having played for Ipswich Town, Arsenal, Everton, West Ham United, Sheffield United and Preston North End, he is yet to make his Manchester City debut despite joining them in the summer of 2012.

Wright has been capped twice for England, making his debut against Malta in a friendly on 3 June 2000; he gave away two penalty kicks, conceding the first as David Carabott’s shot rebounded into the net off his head after hitting the post, and saving the second.

He was a member of the England UEFA Euro 2000 squad, where he was third choice behind David Seaman and Nigel Martyn.  His second appearance was in a 2-0 defeat against Holland at White hart Lane.
