Virgo Would Welcome U`s Stay

Virgo Would Welcome U`s Stay

Adam Virgo has admitted he would like to seal a permanent move to Layer Road - but admitted it`s not his agenda at present.

Virgo, who joined the U`s in a six-month loan deal back in August from Scottish Premier League side Celtic, and has put in some impressive performances in a U`s shirt.

The centre-back come striker, is still in the dark over his future with Geraint Williams` men as the Layer Road side travel to South Wales for tomorrow`s vital clash with Cardiff.

The former Brighton trainee joined Celtic a few seasons ago and since then he has failed to establish a place in the first-team fold.

He spent the entire of last season on-loan at the Ricoh Arena with Coventry City.

He admitted that his future has not being debated: "Nothing has been discussed yet, he told The Colchester Gazette.

"I don`t think anything will be discussed for a little while and I`m happy to concentrate on playing and doing my best for the team," he added.

When asked, by The Colchester Gazette, about a permanent move to Layer Road he replied, "Yes, defiantly.

"The manager has been good to me and I have enjoyed working with the players.

"I need to speak to Celtic with regards to what they want to do with me so it is a bit up in the air at the moment and I can`t really say too much because I don`t know myself," said Virgo.

Virgo also said he is just happy to have been involved in the U`s last three Championship games, where he has suffered mixed fortunes.

"The Wolves game went well personally, despite the result, and I think we defended better against Sheffield Wednesday away from home for a good win.

"It was unfortunate the other night (against Watford), he added.

Elokobi is worth more than Virgo surely? Do you reckon Celtic are defo interested? they have Lee Naylor at left-back so would not be first choice...If he went there he could be in the Champions League!!!!!
