Perkins Hands In Transfer Request
Monday, 24th Aug 2009 12:08
Midfielder David Perkins has expressed a desire to leave the U's by handing in a transfer request.
The 27-year-old joined United from Rochdale last summer, and while he was a regular in the starting line-up last season, he has so far this season started all of the U's league games on the bench.
However, Perkins request appears to be due to the player being home sick, with U's Chief Exec Steve Bradshaw revealing on the club's website: "Whilst David has really appreciated the opportunity to come to Colchester United and likes playing football here, he has found it very difficult to settle in the south of England and therefore has submitted a formal transfer request.
"David understands that any transfer would have a financial element to it, as he was bought by the football club for a six-figure fee only twelve months ago.
"He is also absolutely committed to taking every playing opportunity whilst he is here, and we all hope that David is able to settle and can commit to a long term future at the club."
