Williams: No Mass Of Exits
Colchester duo Chris Iwelumo and Richard Garcia have both insisted that they will not be rushed into signing new contracts with the club - that`s despite their current deals expiring in the summer.
The U`s do not wish to lose Garcia, scorer of seven goals last season, or Iwelumo, who netted 18.
Apart from these players, insists manager Gheriant Willimas, there will not be a mass exodus of departures.
'It's not that we haven't been discussing terms with both players,' Williams told the East Anglian Daily Times.
"Negotiations have been going on for some time, because we were aware of the situation.
"But these are the only two out of contract, which makes a change from previous years, when we have often had several players out-of-contract in the summer."
