Quoting Queudrue - Defender Franck On Loan Deal!

Latest Colchester signing Franck Queudrue admitted he was lured to Essex because Aidy Boothroyd`s side still have plenty to play for in League One.

'That`s one of the big things that brought me here and when I spoke to Aidy about it, he really drove me to come here, actually. It`s always exiting to play in those situations.

"I hope I can bring enough quality and enough experience to drive us forward and win promotion," he said.

The long-time top-flight full-back, who has worn jerseys for Middleborough, Fulham and Birmingham City over an eight-year stay in England, joined for the remainder of the season as United bid to sure-up their relatively inexperienced defence.

The deal was struck as Colchester enter a key period without regular full-back, Marc Tierney.

While injury has limited Queudrue's appearances this season, the Frenchman added in a pledge to the U`s official site that he will give everything to ensure United stay in the top six until May - they have not been any lower than that so far this term.

"I give everything when I sign for a club - you will see."

He contends for a Colchester starting place for this weekend`s tie against Wycombe having not played a competitive match since October. .

Well, he's certainly saying the right things! I'm rather looking forward to seeing him in a Col U shirt - lets just hope he's no Borrowdale; a left back who arrived with high hopes and performed like a disabled donkey!
