Colchester United striker Kevin Lisbie has revealed he has no plans to leave the U's this summer, despite being linked with a number of Championship clubs.
The 17-goal striker has recently been rumoured to be a transfer target for a number of Championship clubs, but Lisbie believes he will still be a U's player next season. Lisbie, 29, still has two years to run on his current U's deal, following his free transfer move from Charlton last summer.
The Jamaican told The Colchester Gazette: 'Right now I'm a Colchester United player and I'm looking forward to kicking-off in the new Weston Homes Community Stadium.
'I drive past it every day to go to the gym and it is looking very impressive.'
However, Lisbie admitted he cannot guarantee anything, he added: 'I can't guarantee anything.
'If another club comes in for me and the two teams agree a fee, who knows where I could be by the time the season gets under way.
'But it would have to be a southern club because there's no way I would move up north to a Burnley, Huddersfield or Barnsley.
Lisbie spoke about how he sat down with U's boss Geraint Williams at the end of last season.
'I sat down with the manager and chairman at the end of last season and said I would only move to the right southern club because I have no wish to uproot my family,' he went on.
Yesterday it was reported on Vital Colchester that the U's East Anglian rivals Ipswich were keen on Lisbie, to read the article Click Here
But Lisbie was quick to deny he had spoken to anyone: 'I haven't spoken to anyone and I'm not just going to up and leave for any old club.
'We start pre-season training at Colchester on Monday and if anything was going to happen I believe it would have happened by now.
'Clubs like to get their new players in before pre-season and I doubt there will be much movement anywhere now.'
Lisbie also revealed how he is looking forward to scroing lots of goals in league One.
He said: 'When I first signed for Colchester I told the manager I would score a lot of goals if I played a full season - I did that.
'And if I do stay on, hopefully I will score a lot more now we will be playing our football down in League One.'
As usual we want to know your thoughts...
