Fans: £250k - £500k For Lis - But What About U's?

Vital Colchester's most recent poll has revealed that 49% of voters would be prepared for the U's to part with a figure of up to £500,000 to secure the permanent future of loan star Kevin Lisbie.

We asked YOU...:- How Much Would You Pay To Sign Kevin Lisbie Permanently?

Nothing, there's better players out there! - 24%

000,000-£250,000 - 10%

250,000-£500,000 - 49%

500,000-£750,000 - 6%

Anything - We Must Break The Bank! - 11%

However, as we all know, its all down to what Colchester United - and Robbie Cowling and Aidy Boothroyd in particular - feel is a suitable fee.

'I don`t think we can afford the fee they are asking or the wages Championship clubs can afford,'
Boothroyd continued.

He added: 'But we may be able to come up with something at the end of January.'

One thing that is for sure is that an interesting four weeks awaits...
