Resolving the future of Ben Williams is not something that John Ward, as he told sky sports, is in a 'hurry' to do so.
Williams' contract expires at the end of the season and the 29-year-old has already expressed his desire to move on in a loan capacity if he cannot force his way into the first team, having played 'second fiddle' to Mark Cousins this season so far.
Reports are linking other clubs with The U's player of the year from last season but Ward is not listening to this and will cross that bring if/when it happens, he is also not rushing to resolve his contract issues: 'we'll take our time to do that because although there is reported interest from Championship clubs no one has called me about him, so that is probably just hearsay.
'If they phone me then we will deal with it, but at the moment no one has called me about any of our players.
'I'm very much aware that the player's contract need to be looked at during the course of the season, as is the chairman, and that will happen.
'It isn't something that we are putting to bed and ignoring and we will try to get these things done as soon as we can.'
As it stands it would be more likely that Williams will be leaving Colchester at the end of the season, if not before, but things can change.
