Colchester United stopper Dean Gerken is set to return to North Essex earlier than expected, due to Darlington’s financial problems.
The Quakers entered administration earlier this week and had ten-points deducted as a punishment. Gerken had been on loan at the Northern Echo Darlington Arena and was in the second of a two month loan spell.
However, due to recent events the 23-year-old may have to return to the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
U’s manager Paul Lambert said: ‘Dean might be coming back soon. He might have to, with Darlington’s current plight.
‘I’ll be having a chat with Dave Penney (Quakers manager) over the next few days, but Dean will probably be coming back.’
The U’s current first-choice ‘keeper Jimmy Walker’s loan from West Ham is set to expire on Thursday, so Gerken could be needed.
