Villa's Ireland U21 international Tyreik Wright heads to Salford on loan

Republic of Ireland U21 international Tyreik Wright has left Aston Villa for Salford City on loan. 

The 19-year old will spend the season with the League Two side.

It's Wright's second loan spell away from Villa Park, having made 16 appearances for Walsall in League Two last season.

"I’m absolutely delighted [to sign], it’s a big club, big ambitions for the season, absolutely delighted to be here and I can’t wait to get started!" he told the Salford website.

“It’s kind of a new group so it’s going to take a while to gel together but the ambition for the season is definitely to get promoted.

“I loved my experience at Walsall, I played out of position too so it’s a different kind of experience for me, and what I’ve learned is that it’s a very physical league, demanding as well, and there’s no easy game here.

“I’m looking forward to it, I just want to get on the pitch and show the Salford fans what I can do.”

Wright was plunged straight into the fray, being named on the Salford bench for Tuesday night's game away to Crawley Town.

His new manager Gary Bowyer added, "He’s someone that we identified from when he played for Walsall on loan; in the build-up to the game when we watched him we were impressed with what he brought and then we were delighted that night when he wasn’t named in the starting XI because he’s an exciting player and can get past people!

“We’re thankful to Dean Smith and Aston Villa for allowing us to bring him here, obviously he’s got competition and he’s got to earn his shirt but we’re excited with being able to get the deal done and we look forward to him progressing and building on what was a really good loan at Walsall for his first one.

“We spoke to people who were there at the same time and they could only say good things about him.”
