The short-term deal of David Fox expires this week so as things stand the form Norwich mans second spell with Colchester will end after our FA Cup tie this week.

Fox returned to the U’s earlier in the season and after a short spell training with us, after an unsuccessful trial with Preston following his summer release by Norwich, he signed a short-term contract on October 6th.

This deal will expires next week meaning that the FA Cup third round meeting with Championship outfit Cardiff would prove to be his last for the club if a new deal isn’t agreed.

An offer has been made to extend the 31-year-olds second spell with Fox quoted in the Sudbury Mercury as saying that he ‘hopes to stay longer’ and feel that things will sort things out after the Cardiff game as he’s enjoying his football and thinks, even in defeat, we’ve performed well.

He said: ‘I hope to stay longer. I’m not sure of the exact situation at the minute, but it will probably sort itself out during the week. I’m sure we will get it all done then.

‘Cardiff is the last game of my current deal, so hopefully something can be sorted out after that.

‘I’m enjoying playing football here, and I’m enjoying the responsibility.

‘It’s never nice losing games, but the last couple of performances have been really enjoyable to play in (against Gillingham, and at Crawley). We’ve passed the ball and we’ve created chances.’

If Fox doesn’t stay it would be a major surprise wouldn’t it, seen as he’s been captaining the side of late too.
