SCUNTHORPE boss Ian Baraclough has confirmed that midfielder Josh Wright has handed in a transfer request.

Baraclough reluctantly confirmed speculation on Monday the player, who has previously played for Barnet, Brentford and Gillingham, had asked to leave.

"He came to speak to me about it," Baraclough said. "He was offered a new deal and expressed his wish to move on and said he wasn't interested in signing a new deal."
