Colchester's Garcia Joins Hull
Colchester United have confirmed that winger Richard Garcia, having come to the end of his contract in Essex, has joined Hull City after the embargo that stopped players transferring between the two sides expired.
When manager Phil Parkinson left Layer Road last summer for the Tigers, he was forced as a part of the contract to legally declare he would not poach any of the Colchester United personnel.
With that now null and void as of today, Garcia was free to complete a switch to Hull, with whom he signed a three-year contract.
The winger, who scored seven times last term and can also play as a forward, claimed on the Hull website that he was exited by the new challenge which lies ahead and his departure leaves the U`s with only one recognised striker at the club in Jamie Guy.
However, Colchester are hopeful that they will bolster their squad this week, with Clive Platt reportedly due to hold talks about securing a transfer from MK Dons.
