U's Linked With Spireites Forward
Colchester United have been linked with a move for Chesterfield forward Jamie Ward.
Ward, 22, has also been linked with moves to fellow League One clubs Northampton, Scunthorpe and MK Dons. The Birmingham-born striker, who can also play in midfield, netted 12 goals last season for the League Two club.
Ward, a former Nothern Ireland U-18 international, started his career at Aston Ville but failed to feature for the first-team. In March 2006, Ward joined Stockport County on loan. He made nine appearances for County, scoring once. Following his release by Villa at the end of that season, Ward signed a 3-year-contract with Torquay United. In December 2006, Ward asked for a transfer away from Torquay and was signed by Chesterfield the next month.
Ward still has 12-months to run on his current contract at Saltergate, so will require a fee if the U's were keen on him.
So would Ward be a good signing? We want to know YOUR thoughts?
