Colchester United boss Joe Dunne is hoping to loan out winger Drey Wright, so that the teenager can get some-much needed match action.
Talented winger Wright has been sidelined for half-a-year, with a long-term knee problem which required surgery.
But the former U’s Academy player is now back to fitness, and ready to play again.
He played an hour in the Essex Senior Cup semi-final tie at Concord Rangers last week, but might have to drop down a division or two to get some competitive league action under his belt.
Dunne revealed: “We have an idea with what we want to do with Drey (Wright), in terms of getting him match fit.

“We haven’t got games at under-21 level, so we are looking at a couple of interesting options which we’ve been talking about as a coaching staff, that could be beneficial for us.
“Drey could have four weeks away – the rest of March – and come back to us in April.

“But we have got to get the right place, and the right team, because Drey has been out for more than five months.
“We need him match fit, and the only way we can do that is to get him some games.
“That will be more beneficial for him than just training and sitting on the bench with us,” added Dunne.
