Colchester United boss, John McGreal, has no intention of being active in the loan market before the loan transfer window closes tomorrow evening.

McGreal revealed during today’s press conference, following the morning training session at Florence Park, that he was not expecting any temporary ins-or-outs before this Saturday’s trip to Cheltenham Town.

McGreal said: “The loan window closes on Friday and I don’t expect there to be any business involving us.

“Our business is done. We did it early.

“I don’t expect anyone out, so I don’t expect anyone to come in. One or two under-23s might go out on loan, but none of the senior squad.

“We will not be active in the loan window, and all clubs will then go with what they have got until January.
