U's boss Paul Lambert confirmed on Friday that Medy Elito has no future at Colchester United, so will former fan and manager Geraint Williams take a chance on the player at Leyton Orient?
Elito, still a teenager, was reportedly shown around the Manchester United training complex and given Champions League tickets to watch Sir Alex Ferguson`s side in 2006.
The Red Devils were waiting to snap up the winger many tipped to become the next Lomana Lualua, according to the People newspaper.
Now, following speculation about his attitude to training and poor time-keeping at the club, Paul Lambert has confirmed after a dire season that Elito is free to leave the club he chose over Manchester United.
"I don't want players here who are just in the comfort zone. Whether they (Ifil and Elito) will go depends on whether their agents are any good," said Lambert on Friday.
Elito is an England youth international and was supported during his big first-team break at the end of the 2007/8 season by former U`s boss, Geraint Williams.
Williams is known to be concerned at the lack of bodies in his squad, as despite one signing, they currently have a only 14 players.
The cash-strapped O`s could also look at taking Elito on loan.
Deal Likelihood? 7/10
What do you think? Could Elito join the O's?
