Coyne Move May Wait Until After World Cup

Coyne Move May Wait Until After World Cup

Chris Coyne has reaffirmed his desire to quit Colchester United for the Australian League - he remains only unsure if the transfer will come this summer or the next.

He will join former Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler in his home country at some point over the next year, according to his latest comments. Flower will start playing for New Queensland Fury FC next month.

"I am not sure if it will be after the World Cup or before but I have always said I will come back and play in Australia," said the U`s official captain, whose first full season in Essex has been blighted by injury.

"I left home at 16 to sign for West Ham and have never really shown people at home what I can do," the defender added, talking to AAP. The former Luton Town man still has a season and a half left on his current contract with the U`s.



The player`s automatic right to a starting place at Colchester has diminished directly because of his international prospects, but he is a proud representative for his country.

He has even relinquished the on-field captain`s armband to United`s midfielder, Dean Hammond, while Neil Trotman was recently loaned from Preston as cover for Coyne, because of his upcoming commitments and general lack of fitness.

"A lot of this team are around the same age group and have grown up together and played at state level against each other and for the Olyroos and the Joeys, so fitting in with the boys was no problem," said Coyne, dismissing the supposed disadvantage of having played in England for so long.

"I think the A-League as a whole is becoming more attractive, otherwise you wouldn't get players like of the calibre of Jason Culina and Craig Moore coming back,"Coyne added, hinting at his own future plans.

Well, his contract runs out in the summer of 2011, so we should get a good fee for him surely?

Would love us to go for Trotman after all the rave reviews he has recieved! Doubt we could afford him though. Up the U's!

well we had 500k to splash on Jones and never used it. If we could get some money for Coyne and maybe some of the other surplus players we might be able to afford him. Alternatively a season-long loan deal would no doubt interest Preston

Yeah, think we would need at least 1 mil to get him permanently. A long-term loan deal would be more likely. . .
