West Ham’s Freddie Sears set to stay longer at Colchester United
COLCHESTER United are confident of extending Freddie Sears’ loan spell from West Ham.
Front-runner Sears’ original loan deal expires after this weekend’s home game against Huddersfield, but both the U’s and the Hammers are happy for the player to stay longer.
Sears himself is also keen to remain with the U’s for the rest of the season.
Manager John Ward revealed this afternoon: “West Ham are fine. I spoke to them yesterday and we’re going to extend the loan for Freddie.
“Both clubs are happy to extend that, and I’ll be delighted if we can keep Freddie around. He is a good player.

“West Ham are happy for him to do that, and so am I,” added Ward.
Sears started the first three games of his loan spell with the U’s, but has been on the bench for the last four fixtures, three of them as an unused substitute.
