KANE Vincent-Young says he would like to sort out his Colchester United future as soon as possible – and admits it is possible he could leave the club, this summer.

The 22-year-old enjoyed an impressive season for the U’s, landing the club’s Young Player of the Year award.

Vincent-Young is one of several players who are due to be out of contract at the Community Stadium and unlike Brennan Dickenson and Tom Lapslie, the U’s do not have an option to extend the existing deal for an additional year.

Vincent-Young told the Daily Gazette: “You never know.

“Right now, I’m here at Colchester.

“I’ve spoken to the management team and they know how much I’ve enjoyed working under them.

“But at the same time, things may happen.

“It would be good to know either way as soon as possible, for peace of mind.

“Ideally, I don’t want to be away thinking about whether I’m here or there, next season but we’ll see what happens.”

Vincent-Young was a consistent performer for Colchester this season, clocking up 41 league and cup appearances.

Only four U’s outfield players appeared more times for John McGreal’s side than the former Spurs youngster, who played the majority of the campaign at left wing-back.

“I feel like I’ve come on leaps and bounds this season,” said Vincent-Young.

“I thank the management for trusting me and after that, it’s up to me to be consistent and put in the performances.

“I’ve been playing at either left-back or left wing-back and versatility is so important, in the modern game now.

“The manager could have played a left-footed player on that side but he stuck with me and I’m grateful for that.”

Vincent-Young landed two prizes at Colchester’s End of Season awards night, last week.

In addition to securing the Young Player of the Year accolade, he also scooped the club’s Goal of the Season trophy following his wonder goal in the U’s 5-1 triumph over Forest Green Rovers, last August.

“I was delighted to win the award,” said Vincent-Young, who made his Colchester debut in August, 2015.

“Every year at Colchester, there’s really strong competition especially for the Young Player of the Year award so for me to be picked as the winner was really pleasing.

“I was up against the likes of Courtney Senior, Sammie Szmodics, Frankie Kent and not forgetting Brandon Comley so I was obviously delighted.

“It was great to win the Goal of the Season award, too.

“With that goal, the whole thing was a bit of a blur.

“I remember picking the ball up inside our own half and getting closer and closer.

“When you’ve run that kind of distance I think you probably have made your own luck and it was great to see it go in.

“It would have been nice to have scored more goals after that.

“I’ve got myself into the right kind of positions to score more but it’s not really happened so it’s up to me to be more attack minded.”

Only five teams in League Two boasted a better defensive record than Colchester this season, something Vincent-Young is proud of.

He said: “The defence had a very good year, in general.

“It was predominantly me and Ryan Jackson in the full-back and wing-back positions and then Frankie Kent, Tom Eastman, Ryan Inniss and Luke Prosser, who was excellent after coming back from injury, also had a collective desire not to concede.

“And you can’t forget our goalkeeper Sam Walker, who was the Players’ Player of the Year and has been incredible for us.

“I hope next year we can carry that on and also score more goals, at the other end.

“It was a bit of a strange end to the season for us, in that if you look at the season as a whole prior to those games, we’d generally fair better against the leading teams.

“Unfortunately, we could not carry that on in the last five games of the season and that’s something we’ll look to rectify next season.

“The target has to be a sustained promotion push - it’ll be our third season in the division and that has to be our target.”
