Johnnie Jackson has handed in a transfer request after failing to feature regularly in pre-season so far.
The Colchester United midfield-man was left out the U's squad for last night's game against Aston Villa. To read a match report of the game, click here.
And Paul Lambert confirmed at the press conference after the match that Jacko, along with Phil Ifil, which is no surprise, has asked to move on.
The Scotsman said: 'Johnnie Jackson and Phil Ifil both want to leave the football club.
Lambert selected all of his U's squad last night, bar Jackson, Ifil, John White, Matt Lockwood and Medy Elito, along with injury victims Steven Gillespie and Paul Reid.
'Of the players who played last night, only Steven Gillespie and Paul Reid are injured, he revealed.
Although the former Tottenham Hotspur player is keen to leave, Lambert is adamant Jackson is still in his plan.
'Nobody is guaranteed anything. I don't want Johnnie to go but he is not happy and his agent has asked if he can go.'
However, the same cannot be said about transfer-flop full-back Ifil who Lambert has previously confirmed can leave the Community Stadium.
So what do you think? Do you rate Jacko? Or Ifil?
