Colchester United defensive duo Matt Heath and John White have penned month-long loan deals with fierce Essex rivals Southend United.
Neither Heath or White feature in U’s boss Paul Lambert’s plans for next season, so a move away looked likely. However, a move to the Blues may come as a surprise to many fans of both sides.
Heath, who joined from Leeds permanently, at the start of last season, has failed to command a regular berth in the U’s back-line and has fallen down the pecking order.
While, White, 23, is another player who has struggled to feature prominently since Lambert’s arrival.
Both players loan deals are subject to relevant paperwork clearance from the footballing authorities.
So are you surprised to see the duo head to Roots Hall?
