Deadline Day: Yeates Focused On U's

Deadline Day: Yeates Focused On U's

Vital Colchester will keep you updated with all transfer news and rumours concerning the U`s throughout transfer deadline day.

U`s winger Mark Yeates insists he`ll keep giving 100% to the Essex side as the deadline for any move away draws closer.

The talented midfielder saw a move to Championship side Crystal Palace fall through earlier this summer, but any potential move has until midnight tonight to be completed.

Yeates would have only enhanced speculation of a move away with his performance on Saturday, against Oldham. The former Irish under-21 international struck a goal in either half, to cap a sparkling display in front of U`s home fans.

However, the Irishmen is not expecting to leave the Weston Homes Community Stadium before the deadline.

He revealed: 'As far as I know, I`ll be at Colchester and I`ll keep giving 100-per-cent.'

Yeates, 23, continued: 'I`ve had to try and get that (the possible Palace move) out of my head and work as hard as I can.

'Hopefully, people can see I`m trying to give it my all,' he said.

'Maybe a few people have spoken about my commitment and that`s not nice because I just try and play and give my all.

'Everyone does it in different ways and I like creating and scoring goals.'

I'm glad he is still with us and would have been dissapointed if Palace had come back in with the drisory £500k that was reported as the agreed fee from pre-season. Given his age and potential I think £1m plus would be more realistic.
