Duo Keen On U's Man?

Skysports.com is reporting that U's striker Clive Platt is considering a move away from North Essex.

Several Championship clubs are keeping tabs on Platt, with Norwich City and Sheffield United believed to be two of them. The 30-year-old, who joined the U's from MK Dons 12-months ago, scored eight goals last season.

Looks like the exodus is starting! Who is next? Wasn't fantastic last season and I don't think he would be a regular championship player but I think he will do well in League 1 if he stays. We will need a big target man to go back up. When we got promoted before it was noticeable the difference in having a target make like Iwelumo as previously we had always fallen short of promotion.

Well would be a blow to lose him, I heard Wolves also want him, hope it's not the start of an exodus? Up the U's!

I think Wolves were interested in him January time when they signed Big George. Palace are another team that have previously been mentioned. I can't personally see the Norwich link myself but Sheffield United maybe-Kevin Blackwell has always played with a big front man.
