Lisbie: 'No way I would move up North'

Lisbie: 'No way I would move up North'

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.

He's obviously not interested in furthering his career by going into League One with Colchester.

Thought the same, but if he doesn't want to uproot his family then I have massive respect for him, most footballers would go for money and a higher league status and not give their families a say really.

Strange this is first time we have been linked with him in the media. His call, I suppose and his loss

Think he would be a good signing imo, was scoring for fun last season.

Maybe, then, if he did consider leaving ColU at all, Ipswich would be his desired move. Biggest hint so far.

Well hadn't heard anything of a move to Burnley, until I read his quotes the other day. Hope he doesn't go but wouldn't be surprised if he did, not many footballers show loyalty nowadays.

Aye true Stevie, especially if you suffer relegation. Its worked to our advantage in the case of Paterson but we have lost out on the loyalty card re Gray & Lafferty. Agents/players rule over clubs, I'm afraid, some you win,some you lose!!

I had heard it on the grapevine that we had a passing interest in Lisbie, but it was known that he wanted to stay down in that area as his family were settled. Nothing to do with a northern/southern thing. No more than a passing interest.

Yeah, think now you mention it Pete,someone did mention his name in passing (was it you? lol). Looks like a very low key enquiry though if that. Pretty good player from what I remember of the Colchester v Burnley match at Layer Rd last season
