All quiet on the transfer front, admits and hopes John Ward

COLCHESTER United boss, John Ward, is not expecting any movement in the transfer market, either in or out, before the window closes tonight.

Ward recruited winger Gavin Massey from Watford a week ago, to complete his summer dealings.

The U’s boss confirmed: “All my business has been done, and I haven’t had any interest from other clubs.

“If anything were to happen, it would be completely out of the blue. But I’m not expecting that.”

Midfielder Anthony Wordsworth commanded a lot of interest from other clubs last season, but it has all gone quiet with regards the talented 23-year-old.

The U’s will travel up to the north-west today, training at Crewe Alexandra, ahead of tomorrow’s game at second-placed Tranmere.

Ward has no injury worries and has a full squad at his disposal.
