PHIL Brown is still unsure if he will be able to bring Josh Wright to Southend United.

The former Gillingham midfielder, who was at Saturday's game against Charlton Athletic, is keen to team up with the Shrimpers and Brown would also like the move to happen.

But the Blues boss is not sure if finances will be made available to complete the deal

"I spoke to Josh’s agent yesterday and I’m just awaiting an audience with the chairman to see if I’ve got a budget to bring one more player in," said Brown.

"I know Charlton were interested in him too and that was probably the main reason he was there on Saturday.

"It it what it is.

"If I’ve got a budget then I know the chairman will support me but if I haven’t I’ll have to get on with what I’ve got."
