HUNGARIAN international centre-half Bela Balogh, could sign for Colchester United this week.
Balogh played a couple of games on trial for the U's last week, at Heybridge Swifts and Cambridge United, but a potential deal fell through and his trial period ended. However, the 22-year-old returned to action in a surprise appearance for the U's at Bromley in last night's pre-season friendly.
The indications are that Balogh could well sign a deal within the next few days, either a permanent one or perhaps a loan deal from MTV Hungaria.

U's chief executive, Marie Partner, confirmed: "Bela's trial has been extended and following discussions in recent days, we are hoping to conclude the details of his contract with Colchester United in the next 24 hours."
Anthony Wordsworth was on target in the U's 1-1 draw at Bromley. It was a largely inexperienced Colchester side on show.
