Cult-hero Colchester striker Kevin Lisbie has pre-empted the question over his obligations to parent club Ipswich by sensationally snubbing his East Anglian paymasters.
The thirty-something netbuester forward has a loan contract with the U`s this season, with a recall option up for review at Christmas.
Town may recall Lisbie if they wish to sell the player they themselves signed from United on to another club. Today, however, the positive news for Colchester fans is that the ex-Jamaica international has all-but pledged to re-join the Essex side when the opportunity arises.
Lisbie told the EADT: “I don’t want to go back. Even if it came to the point where they wanted me back I think I would speak to both clubs and explain my situation.
I just felt like the club didn’t want me. If I had to go back then I would, but I don’t want to be going from club-to-club at this stage of my career.‘
The loan star heaped praise upon Colchester during his latest interview, saying they were a club one of the best teams in League One league before adding that they were clearly “going places.”
The playmaker, who has been putting in good performances on the wing since the arrival of competition up front in recent weeks at Colchester, added that he thrives on a reciprocal relationship with people at United because it is where he`s most appreciated.
All-in-all, that`s great news for the U`s!
