Halford - Time to Go!

Halford - Time to Go!

Colchester's Greg Halford is adament that he will leave Layer Road, and with his contract over in the summer he is anxious as to what the future holds.

The 22-year-old seems set to leave the Layer Road at the end of the season, with his contract set to end in the summer.

The utility player has gained the interest of Premiership clubs, indeed Sheffield United failed with a £1 Million bid for the youngster last summer.

Reports now suggest that Colchester have turned down a £2million offer from Charlton Athletic for the highly-rated player.

Halford has been left wondering what the future holds and is keen to have sort his future out.

'It's getting closer to the end of my contract and I am keen to get away,' Halford said in the Sunday Mirror. 'It is all making me a bit anxious.

'There have been a few concrete bids from three or four different Premiership clubs already, but nothing has been accepted, which is a bit frustrating for me.

'Each of the offers was for quite a bit of money, but obviously Colchester are looking for a bit more. I'm not sure what that magic number is yet.

'I understand why Colchester do it - they want to keep me until the end of the season and try to get into a play-off position.

'But they know I won't be signing a new contract in the summer and I'll be sold for a fraction of what they could get now.

'There is still quite a lot of time left in January, so I'll keep hoping.'
