Colchester United boss, John McGreal, confirmed, at this lunchtime’s press conference that no transfer activity was likely in either direction on transfer deadline day today.

Speaking ahead of this Saturday’s first home game of the season, against Port Vale, McGreal revealed: “Our dealing are more or less done for the window.

“We have no phone calls about any of our players, which is good news.

“I can’t see anything moving, both ways.

“It’s a bit different with loans, because that deadline is not until the end of the match,” added McGreal.
