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.
