Boothroyd Has Garcia In Sights?

Aidy Boothroyd could make former Colchester United favourite Richard Garcia his first signing for Championship club Coventry.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Hull City winger is subject to a 500,000 interest from the ex U`s manager, who it appears is wasting no time with restricting his new squad.

Garcia turned out for the U`s 95 times after joining them from West Ham between 2004-7 and is currently involved in Australia`s preparation for the World Cup finals in South Africa.

The 29-year-old versatile winger can also be deployed up front and is thought to fit Boothroyd`s bill as a potential bright-spark and possible goalscorer.

The player`s chances at Hull last term were fairly limited even after his successful return from a pre-season rupture injury but his career will always be analysed with interest by Colchester fans, particularly because of his performences during the club's Championship days.

He's capable at Championship level so should make a decent signing in my view...
