U's Target Nelson Set To Sign Elsewhere

U's Target Nelson Set To Sign Elsewhere

FREE AGENT defender Michael Nelson looks set to reject interest from Colchester United after leaving Hartlepool United.

The hard-man centre-half leaves Victoria Park, on a Bosman transfer, after shunning a new contract. And the U's, along with Brighton, Huddersfield, Southend and Leeds, appear to have incurred defeat in their attempts to sign him.

The 29-year-old has reportedly marked a move to either Championship new-boys Scunthorpe United, or recently relegated Norwich City, as his preferred destination.

Nelson is one of a long list of defensive players to have been mooted with a move to the Weston Homes Community Stadium, with none yet arriving.


So is this bad news? Or are their better players out there?

I think pretty much every club in L1 who can afford him has been linked.

I've no idea what he's like, so I can't be sad we didn't sign him!

I wonder how many of our targets we have officially failed with so far.
