COLCHESTER UNITED defender Chris Coyne has revealed he would like to return to Australia in the near future.

The U’s club captain has struggled to establish himself in Paul Lambert’s side this season, due to injuries and international commitments. The former Luton town man has spoke regularly of his desire to return to his homeland.

The 30-year-old centre half told ‘I’ve always wanted to come back and play in the A-League because I left home at such a young age.

‘Obviously being a Perth boy I’d love to come home and play for Perth.’

Despite saying he would like to return down-under ‘sooner rather than later,’ Coyne refused to say exactly when.

He admitted: ‘It could be six weeks, or six months or six years, but I’ve got a box to tick and it’s something I’d like to do sooner rather than later.’

Coyne is currently on duty with the Socceroos at present, ready for Wednesday’s game with Uzbekistan, missing three U’s games in the process.

Vital Colchester’s current poll asks: Will Chris Coyne Be At The WHCS Next Season?

  • Think he just go as im getting fed up of him keep saying “I would like to return sooner or later”!!!!!!

  • Yep, is getting a bit annoying, seems like he doesn’t really wanna be here. If we get a good fee for him than it would be OK.

  • In the current climate I would say “a fee” would be good as I would imagine he is one of the clubs top earners. Free some cash up for another player who will feature more and not keep flying off half way round the world and wages

  • Some of the Australian teams have a fair bit of cash and think we’ve just got to get as much out of them as possible. Reckon we will bid for Rob Jones again.
