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?

Yeah, think he's lookin for a move back to England just like Henderson.

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.
