Gillingham have confirmed the signing of ex-Millwall midfielder Josh Wright on a short-deal.
After manager Justin Edinburgh hinted at a signing being on the way to the MEMS Priestfield Stadium during a #Askthegaffer Twitter Q&A, all fans were eagerly awaiting the expected 2pm news.
The club did not disappoint and promptly announced the short-term signing of Joshua Wright and have announced he will be eligible to play against Sheffield United tomorrow in the first game of the season.
The 25-year-old midfielder previously played for the club in 2008/09, then just in his teens, and was an essential part of their Wembley play-off match that saw them getting promoted to League One.
Wright, who was released by Leyton Orient at the end of the summer, has had stints at Millwall, Charlton Athletic and Crawley, will be returning to the Gillingham squad with the number 44 shirt.
With the manager unable to hide that a signing was imminently about to be announced it is expected that he will be part of the manager’s upcoming plans, and will hopefully be welcomed back by supporters with open arms.
Joshua also tweeted his delight about returning to his old club after a challenging summer.
