Joe Dunne says he is not dwelling on player departures from Colchester United - because he knows that quality replacements are imminent.

The U’s are yet to add to their squad but boss Dunne says he hopes to have positive transfer news in the next few days for U’s fans.

Dunne said: “My focus is on what I’ve got and what I’m trying to bring in - not on the players who have gone.

“What I have got is a good group of players who will be working with me and we’ve got good options.

“If everything goes well, we could have some news very soon (about new signings)."
