However, the Australian's displays have not gone unnoticed and Sky Sports understands that there are clubs in the Premier League and Championship ready to make offers in January to take Wright.

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.
