COLCHESTER United striker Kevin Lisbie has snubbed interest from Burnley, Huddersfield and Barnsley, saying that if he did move , it wouldn't be up north.
Lisbie scored 16 times last term in his first season with Colchester, who were relegated to League One, fuelling rumours that the former Charlton man was set to move again,
Despite having another two years left on his U's contract, Lisbie has said that he would consider any moves following United's relegation, but denied a move up north while speaking to the Colchester Gazette:
'Right now I'm a Colchester United player and I'm looking forward to kicking-of in the new Weston Homes Community Stadium.
'I can't guarantee anything - If another club comes in for me and the two teams agree a fee, who knows where I could be by the time the season gets under way.
'But it would have to be a southern club because there's no way I would move up north to a Burnley, Hudersfield or Barnsley - I sat down with the manager and chairman at the end of last season and said I would only move to the right southern club because I have no wish to uproot my family.'
So it does sound like Burnley have been in contact with Colchester about the striker's availablity, but this looks like another target to be firmly crossed off the list if his comments are anything to go by.
