Colchester United are reportedly ready to pay £400,000 to make midfielder John-Joe O'Toole's loan move a permanent one.
Aidy Boothroyd initially agreed a four-month loan deal for O'Toole, an Irish U-21 international, a spell which is set to expire in January. Despite not setting the world alight during his time at the Community Stadium so far, the 20-year-old has been a consistent performer in the centre-of-midfield.
And now national paper, The Daily Mirror, is reporting that O'Toole's parent club Watford are hoping to cash in on the highly-rated youngster to fuel a bid for Plymouth forward Jason Puncheon.
Although £400,000 is a fair bit of money at League One level, I firmly believe that it could prove a shrewd move with O'Toole yet to hit top form.
So what do you think?
