Kaspars Gorkss looks to have played his last game for Colchester United.

The 33-year-old Latvian defender’s short-term contract comes to an end this week – his last game of that four-week deal was last Friday night’s 3-1 defeat at Cardiff City in the FA Cup.

U’s boss, Tony Humes, has already held talks with Gorkss, and will meet up with the ex-QPR and Reading centre-half today.

However, Humes has admitted that Gorkss is unlikely to stay at the League One club.

“I had talks with Kaspars (Gorkss) last Wednesday,” revealed Humes.

“I think Kaspars is looking for an opportunity to play as high as he possibly can.

“We are going to renew talks on Monday, and see what happens, but you can’t blame him for what he wants to try and do, because he is getting towards the end of his career, and he wants to give it a real go.

“You look at Kaspars out there tonight (Friday) and I think that was the best he has played for us.

“I thought he was really committed and he was part of a strong defence. He and Tom Eastman, I thought, looked very comfortable.

“But I believe he’s looking elsewhere. We knew that when he came in – we knew that this position was going to be put upon us.

“He’s done well for us in the six games that he has played, and if it happens then it happens.

“We will have to look at where we are, and obviously bring someone else in if Kaspas leaves,” added Humes.
