U`s Williams - I Tried To Keep Brown

Geraint Williams has stated in the local press that he was hopeful of securing the long-term services of Wayne Brown before it became obvious last week that his heart was set on a move away.

The 29-year-old former U`s vice-captain had one year remaining on an existing deal with the Essex side, but elected to move to Hull City for 450,000.

Colchester manager Williams told the Evening Gazette this week: "I just felt we might be able to persuade Wayne to stay and extend his contract with us but there didn`t seem to be anything coming back."

It seems the player had made his mind up: "We had a long heart-to-heart with Wayne on more than one occasion and he made it very clear that he wanted to get away," added Williams.

"I`m very disappointed."
