Drey Wright signs new deal

We are delighted to confirm that Drey Wright has signed a new one-year deal with the club.

Drey missed a large part of last season with a knee injury but returned towards the tail end of the campaign to play a key role in helping us secure Premiership safety.

The 29-year-old has shown his versatility during his time at McDiarmid Park, contributing strongly at both ends of the park.

After penning his new deal, Drey said: “I’m really happy to get things sorted here and I am looking forward to making up for some lost time.

“I think I was improving with every game towards the end of the season and thankfully I was able to help get the job done.

“Hopefully now, with a full pre-season, the improvement can continue and I can contribute a lot more in the upcoming season.

“Pre-season will be hard graft as ever but that is needed to give ourselves the best chance of success in the cup games and in the league.”

Drey has made 97 appearances for the club in total and added: “It’s my fifth year at Saints so it’s starting to feel like home.

“I enjoy coming in every day and I’ve made a lot of friends. After some really positive discussions with the manager and Andy Kirk, I’m really looking forward to my next year here.” 

Manager Craig Levein said: “We are delighted to extend Drey’s contract at McDiarmid Park. Drey has been a big part of the club for a number of years now and he will continue to play an important role going forward.

“Drey was left frustrated with injury for most of last season, but he showed his importance at the end of the campaign. He was a significant player for us and we are now excited to get back to work with him during pre-season.”
