The 22-year-old keeper, who has been told by Kevin Keegan that he will travel to Euro 2000 as England's number three, is set to discuss a new deal with chairman David Sheepshanks.
Wright’s situation has been monitored by a host of Premiership clubs, with his profile being enhanced as he has ascended to the England squad, but his decision will be a fillip to the Portman Road faithful.
Also, Town manager George Burley has declared that his side are good enough to survive their first season in the Premiership.
Speaking after Monday’s play-off final victory over Barnsley, Burley said: "We have got a fantastic squad of players and they are quality players.
"You can talk about players like Richard Wright, James Scowcroft, David Johnson and Marcus Stewart, but we’ve also got a lot of good young players coming through.
"If we were going up and I was thinking maybe a lot of these players can’t play in the Premiership then I would be worried, but I think that the vast majority of our players are good enough to play in the Premiership."
