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.

More to follow when we get it...

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...

Unhappy Keeper Back With Norwich

Kean had come in on a 28-day from Norwich but his time at the Weston Homes Community Stadium is over with Keen confirming he was 'unhappy with a couple of things.'

Panicking? Not Yet!

Before the Southend game Keen insisted he wasn't panicking, despite the U's being seven-points adrift of safety. Three-goals in the final 10-minutes lead to another defeat of course.

League 1 - Southend 3-0 Colchester

Having battled for almost an hour with 10-men three-goals in the final 10-minutes from Southend condemned Colchester to a three-nil defeat.
