Colchester United boss, John McGreal, confirmed, at this lunchtime’s press conference that no transfer activity was likely in either direction on transfer deadline day today.

Speaking ahead of this Saturday’s first home game of the season, against Port Vale, McGreal revealed: “Our dealing are more or less done for the window.

“We have no phone calls about any of our players, which is good news.

“I can’t see anything moving, both ways.

“It’s a bit different with loans, because that deadline is not until the end of the match,” added McGreal.

The U’s started the week by announcing the welcome news that Kane Vincent-Young had decided to sign a new deal – Vincent-Young’s previous contract had expired, and so he was not registered to play at Notts County last Saturday.

But the 22-year-old has since opted to sign a new two-year contract, with the option of another year.
