Matthew Wright has been delisted by the Crows

MATTHEW Wright has joined Brodie Martin and Sam Siggins as departures from Adelaide's senior list with the Crows delisting the half-forward on Wednesday.

The club's busy off-season, where it recruited Troy Menzel, Dean Gore, Curtly Hampton and Paul Seedsman, has seen the uncontracted 25-year-old leave after six years and 94 games.

"Matthew was very professional during his time at West Lakes and he always put the team’s needs first," Crows head of football David Noble said.

"After starting his career as a rookie he worked hard to get the most out of himself.

"Matthew was a popular member of our playing group and the club wishes him all the best for the future."
