Lisbie to Ipswich - The Latest


Lisbie: U's Have Given Me Something To Think About

U's striker Kevin Lisbie told The Colchester Gazette: 'The manager has thrown a new contract on the table and given me something to think about.

'I owe the rest of my career to him (Geraint Williams).

'He really showed me how much he wanted to sign me and believes in me.

'This time last year, I was going to clubs looking for a trial.

'I had a good season on a personal level but the relegation spoiled things.

'If we had stayed up, I'd have definitely stayed at Colchester.

'But we're in League One and two years ago, I was playing in the Premiership.

'I think I still have at least four or five years to offer in the Championship and hopefully the Premier League.'

Williams: Nothing Concluded

U's boss Geraint Williams told myfootballwriter: 'Nothing is concluded and we never take anything for granted either way at this club until the papers are signed.

'I speak to Kevin regularly and obviously there has been interest in him. I would like to keep him but he has earned the right with the offer (his performances) have prompted, to speak about possibly moving away.

'The club have dealt with the interest and what we usually do - as you've seen with the signings of Perkins and Gillespie, where they were touted in place with other clubs, we just tried to stay out of it and get it done - what we do with incomings and outgoings is we don't like to talk about things one way or another.

'Obviously the reason he's not here tonight (at Tiptree) is because there is interest in him and he is in negotiations, but I've been talking to Kevin, he came away with us to Loughborough and had a great few days up there.

'He was nothing but positive so he's been an excellent character, he's come back the same way as he left last year, and I've even spoken to him today.

'We're in constant contact waiting for the events to unfold, hopefully - and I mean hopefully - sooner rather than later. We shall see.'

Magilton 'Hopeful' Lisbie Will Sign Before Weekend

Town chief Jim Magilton told myfootballwriter: 'We're hopeful things can be sorted before the weekend. He's had a series of medical tests and if he comes through all that then we will be a lot closer.

'If it comes down to a decision for the player then we will leave him to make that decision.'

I think Lisbie's comment of "If we had stayed up, I'd have definately stayed at Colchester" sums it up to be honest. When will we learn to rewatrd players with new contracts early on and not wait until other bigger teams show an interest.
