100,000 fee puts U's off

Colchester are interested in an unnamed non-league striker but their valuation has put The U's off.

John Ward, as he told The Gazette, is looking for a 'bargain' around the non-league scene but the prices being asked even at this level are beyond the club: 'the non-league is an option.

'We keep hearing about the lad Jamie Vardy at Fleetwood but they apparently value him at 1m.

'And Scunthorpe took Connor Jennings from Stalybridge Celtic, for an undisclosed fee.

'I have enquired about a non-league striker but we were quoted a price of 100,000.'

A new striker, and other signings perhaps, is still something that Colchester need but Ward concedes that a loan deal is the most likely option: 'I think at this stage, it is more likely to be a loan signing that we make.'
