Hibs linked with St Johnstone winger Drey Wright

Last updated : 01 June 2020 By Steve Forbes

Hibs have tonight been linked with a move for St Johnstone winger Drey Wright.

The 25-year-old has knocked back a new deal at McDiarmid Park, and according to the Daily Record, The Hibees are ready swoop after Wright was asked to take a hefty wage-cut.

Hibs will apparently have to fight off interest from Brsitol Rovers, who are keen to take the former Colchester winger back to England.

Manager Jack Ross knows he can't sign any playes until all wage defereals, caused by the Covid-19 outbreak, have been dealt with, so it could be a while before any move happens.

Wright has played 45 times for the Perth club, scoring 2 goals, as well as over 150 appearances for Colchester in English Leagues One and Two.

Editor's View:

I've got to admit, I don't know much about Wright, but the Hibees could have done with another winger last season.

Glen Middleton's loan from Rangers didn't work, and with Martin Boyle missing a big chunk of the season with injury, our only other fit winger was Daryl Horgan.

St Johnstone fans on social media seem dissapointed by his possible departure, which is always a good sign.

Wright has plenty experience whiwch is another plus, but at 25 can still improve.

It will now be interesting to see if Jack Ross follows though with his interest.
