Transfer Rumour: Easter Readying Return?

Transfer Rumour: Easter Readying Return?

Colchester United`s search for a new striker is still ongoing, but might Monday`s paper talk confirming the Essex side are interested in a Championship namemean Jermaine Easter rejoins the club?

The former Wycombe Wanderers striker spend time with United last season, only to suffer a ligament injury before vowing after recovery that an Argyle starting place was still possible.

But, with United stepping up their search and club manager Paul Lambert a known Easter fan, speculation of a return is rife.

Vital Colchester have also reported conjecture on the strong counter-targets to sign, including transfer-listed Ruben Reid from Rotherham, profile here, and former Southend player and Dagenham & Redbridge man, Paul Benson, profile here.

The Colchester Gazette reporting that Colchester are tracking a Championship forward appears to rule out both Reid and Benson and point to someone like Easter. He scored twice in five games last season for the U`s before his injury.

Paul Lambert is looking for competion for current front four, Jamie Guy, Scott Vernon, Clive Platt and Steve Gillespie.

Would Easter be ideal again for the U's?

Not really sure. Said some harsh things when he left about 'the grass not always being greener on the other side'...

Also said when we played Yeovil at home, it was like a reserve game. I hope whoever it is will have a good goal scoring record, and not another 1 hit season wonder like Platt and Gilly.

Well I think we need 2 strikers. 1 with a good goal scoring record, and the other that's fast and tricky. Easter is fast and tricky, so he will always be a good signing.

If he is going to have such a poor attitude, then fine- stay at Plymouth! Our gain, I say!
