Last time Vital Colchester carried any quotes from Lomana LuaLua, they were from his icons page. They said the former Colchester striker one day planned to return to North Essex.
He played for Colehster, having been discovered by foemrer player Micky Cook, from 1998 – 2000.
But today`s News of The World reports that the 28-year-old who is now playing in Qatar after a spell with Greek side Olympiacos.
LuaLua scored just five goals for the Black Cats` rivals, but developed an infectious summersault celebration and also notably dedicated a goal against Manchester United for Portsmouth to his deceased son, Jesus.
LuaLua probably will not be linking up with ex-U`s man, Greg Halford, were he to join.
The right-back has been told he can leave Sunderland, with Championship play-off losers Sheffield United ready to make an offer.
LuaLua also features in today’s top-ten feature on Colchester United’s best homegrown talents of all time. Click here hereto read the article.
