English Championship side Coventry City have agreed a $10m fee with Antalyaspor for USMNT hitman Haji Wright.
The 25-year-old enjoyed an excellent season for club and country last term, scoring 15 goals in the Turkish Lig for The Scorpions after making his loan move permanent last summer.
Haji Wright set for switch to English second tier
Coventry City were just a penalty shootout away from making it into the Premier League last season but were eventually beaten 6-5 on spot-kicks by Luton Town at Wembley back in May.
The news was reported by Coventry Telegraph reporter Andy Turner, who writes that the Sky Blues have fought off Hull City for the signature of the USMNT star. Wright scored for the Stars and Stripes at last winter’s FIFA World Cup in his nation’s eventual 3-1 defeat to the hands of the Netherlands in the Round of 16.
Los Angeles native Wright has spent the majority of his career in Europe after leaving New York Cosmos at the age of 18 and has appeared for German club Schalke 04, as well as Dutch side VVV Venlo and Danish outfit SonderjyskE during a nomadic seven years.
