Last season’s loanee Ben Wright has signed on a permanent deal at Eastleigh from crisis club Salisbury City subject to finalisation of paperwork with the FA.

The striker netted an impressive 11 goals in 15 games to help the Spitfires clinch the Skill South championship last season.

This is manager Richard Hill’s fifth summer signing and his third striker to put the pen on the paper.

Wright started his career at Basingstoke Town and played for a number of non league clubs before moving to Peterborough United in 2009.

The 25 year old 6ft 2 finisher has since played for Crawley Town and Forest Green Rovers to name a few.
