Colchester United's Kane Vincent-Young is on the radar of their East Anglian neighbours Ipswich Town.

The 22-year-old defender is out of contract at the JobServe Community Stadium this summer and is yet to put pen to paper on a new deal.

Because of his age, Colchester would be due compensation should Vincent-Young, as expected, leave the club.

And Town are believed to be weighing up a move to sign the youngster, who worked under Town coach Bryan Klug during his time at Tottenham Hotspur's academy.

As the Daily Gazette reported this week, the U's are now preparing for life without Vincent-Young, Sam Walker and Sean Murray after the deadline they were given to sign new contracts with the club came and went.

Vincent-Young was a consistent performer at left wing-back for Colchester last season, helping John McGreal’s side achieve the joint sixth-best defensive record in the division.

The former U's under-23 player, who has made 80 appearances for the U’s since making his senior debut for them in 2015, was named their Young Player of the Year at their awards night.

He also won the club's Goal of the Season trophy for his wonderful individual effort in Colchester's 5-1 thrashing of Forest Green Rovers, last August.
