Lambert Jokes: "Hibs Want About 20 m!"

Colchester United`s manager Paul Lambert saw the light side of the transfer saga involving Hibernian skipper Rob Jones when he joking said the Scottish side value him at 20 million.

Despite reaction from Hibs to the country, Lambert was busy telling the media at full-time after the U`s win against Northampton last night that the bid was not dead.

"It`s on-going," he is reported as saying in today`s Colchester Gazette.

"I think Hibs want about 20million for him so we`ll have to increase our offer!

"Pat Baldwin and Paul Reid were absolutely brilliant for us though and they`re playing top class football," added the manager, who recently denied on BBC local radio that buying a new centre half was his transfer window priority.
