FORMER Southend United midfielder Josh Wright has been given the opportunity to sign for another National League club, according to Shrimpers boss Phil Brown.

Wright had been back training with Blues for the past few days.

But the 31-year-old is not at Boots & Laces this morning. 

"Josh is not training with us today," said Brown.

"He’s got an opportunity to train and sign somewhere else in the National League I believe.

"There’s a possibility he’s doing that today or tomorrow."

Wright made 26 appearances for the Shrimpers during the 2017/18 season.
