Colchester United’s January interest in Blues striker Freddie Sears is reportedly set to be revived in the summer.

Sears, 31, is out of contract at Portman Road at the end of the season with Town appearing unlikely to take the one-year option on his current deal or offer the one-time West Ham trainee new terms.

In January, the Colchester Gazette, revealed the U’s had spoken to the Blues about Sears returning to the JobServe Community Stadium, the Hornchurch-born frontman having left to join Town in January 2015, a report which was confirmed by then-manager Steve Ball.

Now, Football League World claim Colchester will revive that interest in the summer.

It would be little surprise if Sears did return to North Essex for 2021/22 given the January interest and with the striker having continued to live in that area while with the Blues.
Oh god please be true
Mike apparently the rumour is that they are going to loan him back to us though! :lol:
Shed on Tour visibly trying to give Mike an aneurism! :lol:

Your fears of Sears saw greying hairs and years of tears fall in your beers, but jears, sneers rather than cheers, were heard in the ears of all your peers. Then more glares when his shots clears the upper tiers, yet again BlueMike swears, why he never squares to a striker who'd have made the goal theirs.

How do Colchester United fans think about this? They’ve already got Gerken and. Smith.... and it’s not worked out.Not sure they’d want their club to be a retirement home for ITFC pensioners.

Former Blues striker Martyn Waghorn is reportedly a Town summer target with the 31-year-old’s Derby contract up at the end of the campaign.

Waghorn left Town for the Rams in the summer of 2018 for a fee of £5 million rising to £7.5 million, signing a three-year deal.

Football League World is reporting that Town are weighing up a summer return move for the former Sunderland and Leicester man.

Waghorn was hugely popular in his one season with the Blues, netting 16 goals in 39 starts and seven sub appearances, the Blues having signed for a bargain £200,000 from Rangers in August 2017.

Town boss Paul Cook is set to make wholesale changes to his squad in the summer and it seems likely that free agents currently with Championship clubs will come into his thoughts, although with his ability to recruit at that level hampered by League One’s SCMP Financial Fair Play rules.

The former England U21 international striker is likely to attract attention from plenty of clubs and may still be wanted at Pride Park with manager Wayne Rooney having said a decision on his future and that of other players will be made at the end of the season.

Waghorn will hope to prevent the 21st-placed Rams from joining the Blues in League One on Sunday when they host Sheffield Wednesday, who are 23rd, in their final game of the season.

The South Shields-born frontman has scored three times in 20 starts and 11 sub appearances for Derby during 2020/21.
