U's Want £1m For Lisbie

U's Want £1m For Lisbie

Colchester United are believed to have slapped a £1,000,000 price tag on front-man, Kevin Lisbie.

The U's prize asset scored 17 goals last season, as the U's finished bottom of the Championship and were relegated to League One. The ex-Charlton man's form last season has alerted a number of Championship clubs, with Barnsley and Burnley reported to be two. Barnsley were believed to have made an enquiry but were put off by the £1,000,000 price tag.

However, Lisbie himself has no plans to jump ship and leave North Essex this summer. Vital Colchester reported this last week, to read the article click here.

Lisbie, who has two years left to run on his U's contract, following a free transfer move from Charlton 12 months ago, told the EADT: 'I have spoken to the manager (Geraint Williams) and have told him that I'll be keeping my head down and just waiting to see what happens. I have heard nothing about a £1m price tag. I think that would be asking a bit to much for me!

'I have an agreement with Colchester, and a £1m asking price is not it. Colchester have had a couple of offers for me, and they have talked to me about both of them. They were not the best offers, certainly not £1m, and I'm not surprised that they have been turned down.

'I have a big family and I don't want to uproot, so I wouldn't want to move far anyway.'

Lisbie also said of how there is no guarantee he will score alot of goals next season.

'I scored 17 goals in the Championship, but there's no guarantee that I would find it any easier to score in League One. It should be easier, but who's to say that Platty (strike-force partner Clive Platt) might get 20 goals this season, and not me?,' he concluded.

Some of these comments are somewhat worrying. Its almost like subliminal messages of "I want a London move and I'll be cheaper than a million"
