Henderson Trains With U's - A Lisbie Replacement?

Henderson Trains With U's - A Lisbie Replacement?

Goal-shy attacker Ian Henderson has been training with Colchester United, as the U's look to find a replacement for departed loanee Kevin Lisbie.

Henderson - who started his footballing career with the U's rivals Norwich City - also joined Aidy Boothroyd's side in making the long trip to Preston North End this afternoon. However, the 24-year-old could only warm-up with the rest of the squad at Deepdale - but a move for Henderson seems likely.

The news comes after the confirmed exit of forward Lisbie - back to parent club Ipswich Town - with any potential permenant move looking unlikely.

Henderson, who can operate up front or on the right wing, has returned to England following an unsuccessful short-term spell with Turkish side Ankaragucu.

He had the number sixteen shirt on. Maybe Aidy can get something out of him! Nice to see Colchester using a scout network... he's fairly young!

What on earth was he doing with Ankaragücü? They're quite broke though! Darius Vassell's still there isn't he?

Blimey if Henderson is to replace Lisbie then that's bad news for you lot. Should probably be a decent squad player though.

Well nothings certain yet. Lisbie could still sign, Henderson may not, we may sign another forward - who knows? His scoring record is very poor.
