The Blues are understood to be keeping a firm eye on the 23-year-old full-back, who can play on either side of the defence as well as in midfield.

Vincent-Young was not involved as Colchester beat Swindon 3-0 in the Carabao Cup last night, with the former Tottenham youngster having previously been a target for Luton and Charlton this summer.

"No, nothing there," Lambert said when asked if there has been any progress in the transfer market.

"I know he's Colchester's player and I've not heard anything."
