Colchester`s Brown: I Must Move

The unnamed Championship club believed to be interested in securing the services of Colchester United`s Wayne Brown is Hull City, according to strong speculation, and the defender refuses the perform a U-turn on Tuesday`s decision to request a transfer.

Brown, 29, is adored on the terraces at Layer Road but has become the latest in a long line of regulars by declaring he wants to leave.

In tonight`s Evening Gazette, Brown states: "I don't want to become embroiled in a mud-slinging match, but Colchester have offered me a contract which is not acceptable to me."

According to another passage in the article, he "is doing what`s best for himself," claiming that the mass exodus of last season`s record-breaking squad, who achieved the club`s highest-ever league placing, has influenced his decision.

"Losing Curo (Cureton, to Norwich), Big Chris (Iwelumo, to Charlton) and Richard (Garcia, to Hull) is like losing 50 goals."

What is it with Hull City and the Us? If you're not careful you'll end up their nursery club!
