Breaking News: U's Agree Fee For Strike Duo

Colchester United have agreed a fee for Hamilton Academical front-pair Richard Offiong and Joel Thomas.

Sky Sports News is reporting that the Accies have accepted an offer of around £225,000. U's chairman Robbie Cowling just tonight spoke of how after seven failed attempts to bolster their attack, good news would come soon, click here.

Offiong, 25, has netted 43 times from 94 starts, which works out at nearly a goal every other game. While Thomas, 22, is a highly-rated French forward who moved to New Douglas Park 12-months ago.

The SPL side finished 9th last season following an unlikely promotion to Scotland's top-flight. However in recent weeks manager Billy Reid has seen a number of his star players depart.

Like the look of them both, to be fair... let's have them, I guess. Is this the end of Guy and Vernon?

Although the puts into perspective our future hopes of bringing back Lua Lua after his comments, it’s good to see that one of them had a trial with Wigan...

Yep, player of the first division when they went up. Looks like two decent players, both big strong forwards. Long way to go on any deal though...
