Phil Ifil Makes it Two

Phil Ifil Makes it Two

Spurs defender Phil Ifil has signed for Colchester in a day that has seen Manager Geraint Williams finally make some headway in the transfer market.

Earlier Chris Coyne signed from Luton Town and with two new defenders on the books the Colchester Manager seems intent on addressing the U's defensive frailties that have been all to evident in the first half of this season.

21-year old Ifil has come through the ranks at White Hart Lane and has recentley been on loan at Southampton, who were also reported to be chasing the defender in the January transfer window

Ifil has joined for an undisclosed six figure fee. He has also had loan periods at Millwall, in 2005 and 2006.

Ifil is expected to go straight into the U's squad for the trip to Bristol City.

I don't really know what happened here. When Ifil broke into the Spurs team he did a great job and then disappeared on various loans without ever getting a look in back at Spurs. It's a shame that he never got a chance. Good luck to you and him.

Agree quality little player you have there now bags of potential guess Mj just didnt take as much notice as he should have.Nonetheless wish him well at your club.

rumours were that it went to his head and he lost his way a little, but last season he seemed to get his head right and I think he will do very well for you.

A Good Player On His Day But Can Blow Hot And Cold...!

Perhaps. But he's got something to prove and will get a lot of football at Layer Road - is he a right or left full-back?
