The Official Website has confirmed U’s duo Callum Harrison and Tyler Brampton will stay at their present loan clubs for another month, whereas we’ve seen reports Drey Wright could also go out for a temporary spell?

Harrison has been on loan with Needham Market with Brampton at Maldon & Tiptree, both have extended and with Wright in need of first-team football Colchester could send him out too.

Colchester’s current loan duo out, with Sammie Szmodics out with Braintree Town, Dan Holman at Woking and David Segura also at Maldon & Tiptree as well, have extended their respective loan spells with the Non-League side they’re with until December 7th.

As regards to Wright his battle to regain full fitness, after a long-term – and we mean long – injury has seen Tony Humes tell the Gazette this loan approach could be a possible option.

Wright’s battles against knee injuries have effectively kept him out for two-years with Humes exploring this loan option, however the U’s boss is also wary he’s got to ‘be careful’ in any decision making, not just as far as he goes but what options he’s left with if too many are loaned out!

‘A loan is something we’ve discussed but we’ve got to be careful. While we’ve got a few injuries, we can’t let all our players out on loan.

‘We’ve got to be looking at Drey Wright stepping up to the plate and hopefully showing a little bit more than he is at the minute.

‘We want him to get back where he was, to being that exciting player that he was when he first came through – being a bit more dynamic and playing with more confidence. But we’ve got to remember that he’s missed two years and it’s going to take time to get back where he was.’

Having missed so much football, and having undergone surgeries, all parties want him back with Humes admitting he’s got to be careful not to left impatience get the better of him, adding.

‘There’s a little bit of impatience on our behalf but it’s just a case of wanting him to get back where he was.

‘While we are wanting to see more from him, we’ve also got to be patient and recognise that he’s missed a huge chunk of football.’

All things will be considered and weighed up with the right move made, which ultimately a loan where he could get regular first-team football for a month or so would seem to be the best thing?
