JOSH Wright is leaving Millwall after agreeing to cancel his contract with the club.

The midfielder, who is currently on loan at Leyton Orient, has not played for the Lions since August.

Wright is not part of Ian Holloway's plans for the future and it has been agreed between the two parties to release him from the final six months of his deal at The Den.

The 25-year-old will become a free agent next week and is said to have 'two or three offers on the table', with a permanent move to Orient one possibility.

      That's a bit harsh mate. He hasn't done anything wrong, just wasn't good enough. He's not lazy like hoyte and ranegie, s**** like hoyte and ranegie, or a wage thief like hoyte and ranegie. I'd like to wish him good luck for the future and thank him for that goal against burnley.

      @mfcmike: criticism is not worthy of Josh Wright, he never cost us a penny, never moaned or criticised the club when he wasn't been played and got on with his job. Ok he wasn't up to championship standard, but I wish him all the best in his career.

    Honorable behavior from what seems to be a decent bloke, shame it didn't work out but he has done the right thing and is moving on with his career. Lets hope this shows some of the others what they should be doing.

    Never rated him as a player but I wish him well in the future - let's hope he's the first of many. Can we not seek a similar arrangement with Hoyte and Bywater?

    Seems like a decent bloke - all the best Josh!

    If we all chuck a fiver in we might be able to raise enough to pay Hoyte off and get him out.........

    Been down training ground a few times and hoyte as been training with Harris and he youth team. Seem slim and had him running round like headless chicken. Hopefully ready for some other team. Still can't believe we signed. In my view I feel sorry for our chairman he seem good honest man who wants to do well for us but with that mug Andy by he side we won't.

      @Longfield Lion:
      Never quite up to it, but always had good attitude, especially when not selected, unlike others who used Twitter and other means to s*** off the club, e.g., Feeney.

    Good luck Josh and a great example to the other 23 out of contract in the summer all I ask of em is that if they don't want to be here follow Josh's example and do the honourable thing and you just might undeservedly get yourselves a contract at another club.
    Thieving stards.
    Well done josh

    Chaplow can do one with the other sick note bailey aswell, they're both f***** so move them on! Hoyte? Who is this pompous p**** and we don't need this mug at our club! Dunne, good servant but times change! shittu not the answer either unfortunately too slow. Malone not so special as first thought he can go. a real clear out is needed only get players who have the balls to play for this club and who have the fight!

          @millwallmark: I thought the same thing.
          I had a chuckle when someone disliked my post then I see your post. F.u.c.k.i.n.g unreal some people probably would have got 100 likes for telling josh to f.u.c.k off

    skilful player but lacks a yard of pace - should be able to get a career in the bottom two divisions - could be playing us soon

    Good player for League 1, but never really up to Championship standard. Good luck to him. He always put a proper shift in for us.

    Met him a few years ago when my son had birthday photos taken with him, he was a really nice polite lad. I feel sorry for him that he didn't get a proper chance but that's how it goes. Well pleased that he has taken rejection like a man and not gone and sulked and slagged the club off on social media which seems the modern way, good on ya for that and the best of luck for the rest of your career.

    Wonder goal versus Burnley: http://bit.ly/1tyjok6

    But that was 2012 and sadly could not repeat it.

    Has done the decent thing -

    Others please note - and don't tweet afterwards.

    You'll be judged on the manner of your leaving.

    Best of luck Josh!

    A few more with Wright's attitude and we wouldn't be in the bottom three now. At least he tried and never slagged us off. Good luck to him I say.

    To all of the 58 dislikes I got for the first post get a life, if you think claiming wages for jumping out of tackles is right and acceptable then you or me support the wrong club. Yes never slagged us of but never was he up to the mark. The hoyte comparisons amuse me what's hoyte done different to Wright both s*** and not slagged the mighty wall off. Get real or learn about football
