Colchester's Wayno Wants Out
While Colchester United were busy calling a press conference for this afternoon, where it is thought the club will announce the signing of Teddy Sheringham, defender Wayne Brown has handed in a transfer request.
The defensive rock, appearing in every minute of every match in the club`s debut season in the Championship last term, is said in an Evening Gazette report tonight to "want a new challenge."
The news will be a bombshell to those at Layer Road, who had thought after yesterday`s frenzied transfer activity that the exodus of exits was over for the time being.
However, throughout the season there had been speculation on the terraces that Brown wanted a pay rise, which this Gazette report echoes by stating that talks over a new contract "have failed to reach a satisfactory conclusion."
