U's keen to extend Monakana stay
Colchester United are keen to extend Jeffrey Monakana’s spell at the club.
The skilful winger has impressed since joining the U’s on a month’s loan from League One rivals Preston North End, last month.
Monakana, 19, has so far featured three times for Colchester and scored on his debut in the 2-2 draw at Bradford City.
And although the former Arsenal youngster is not fully fit, U’s boss Joe Dunne is nevertheless keen to see him stay at the U’s for longer.
Monakana’s current loan deal is due to expire next week and Dunne said: “We’ll speak to Preston about the possibility of extending Jeffrey’s loan.
“I need to make the call to Simon (Grayson) and speak to him and see where they are.
“Jeffrey’s not fully fit and the more games he plays the more it benefits us and the more it benefits Preston.
“When he goes back there he’ll be more ready for their first team, because there’s nothing better than playing games.”
