Colchester United are believed to be in line to bolster their squad with the additions of two new players.
The Essex club have been linked with ex-Chelsea winger, Connor Hunte, and also fellow winger Ryan Gondoh, from non-league.
Hunte is looking to kick-start his career at the League Two U’s, after failing to make the grade at both Chelsea and Wolves.
A former Academy player at Chelsea, and ex-England under-17 international, Hunte was later released by the London club and signed for Championship outfit Wolves in the summer of 2014.
The 20-year-old made a couple of league appearances for Wolves, and also played six times on loan at Stevenage last season, before the Molineux club let him go.

Meanwhile, the U’s are also believed to be interested in another 20-year-old, in the shape of non-league stalwart Gondoh.

Gondoh, previously on the books of Barnet, has been tracked by several League clubs. He played for Carshalton last season, and has also played in non-league for the likes of Met Police and Kingstonian.
He should feature for the U’s in the club’s pre-season campaign, which begins with a trip to Maldon & Tiptree on Saturday.
