JOHN McGreal has not ruled out the possibility of Colchester United making further signings, this summer.

But the U’s head coach says it is unlikely there will be any more new faces prior to the big kick-off, on August 3.

Colchester have brought in six new faces for their first-team squad, over recent weeks.

Dean Gerken is the latest to arrive, following Jevani Brown, Paris Cowan-Hall, Omar Sowunmi, Luke Gambin and Michael Fernandes in signing for the U’s.

They have replaced Sammie Szmodics, Frankie Kent, Brennan Dickenson, Mikael Mandron, Rene Gilmartin and Ryan Gondoh who have all moved on to pastures new.

McGreal said: "We're probably not looking to do any more business.

"It's been good and when you look at the players we've lost, they've gone on to bigger clubs.

"We feel as though we've replaced them.

"At this minute, you can never say never because there are still three weeks to go and as a head coach, you adapt to whatever happens.

"But at this moment, I wouldn't say we're overly looking unless something drastic happens.”

Colchester continue their preparations for the new League Two campaign tonight when they travel to play National League South side Wealdstone (kick-off 7.30pm).

The U’s are currently unbeaten in pre-season, winning all three of their games having scored seven goals and conceded none following wins over Cefn Druids, Dulwich Hamlet and Bowers and Pitsea.

McGreal added: “It’s another brilliant test for us at Wealdstone, as it was at Dulwich.

“They’re going to be a hard-working group and they’ll want to do well in the league, as Dulwich do.

“It’s going to be a really competitive game and that’s what we want.

“That leads us into the two showcase games with Ipswich and Charlton.

“We should know where we are after the Charlton game, going into the Dover game.

“There’ll only be a week to go then until the Port Vale game.”
