David Fox has gone from unwanted man at Norwich City to key man at Colchester United.

The midfielder endured two seasons of virtual anonymity at Carrow Road before he was released in the summer, before heading back to Essex.

The 30-year-old is on a short-term deal that expires early next month, but Us boss, Tony Humes, wants him to stay – Fox is now the only fit outfield player over the age of 25 in the squad.

“I have spoken to David (Fox) about lengthening his deal from January,” confirmed Humes, whose team entertain Peterborough in the second round of the FA Cup tomorrow.

“David has gone off to think about it, because his family is based up north and he’s got to think about himself. He’s enjoying his football, and he’s playing week in, week out.

“We would very much like David to stay, because if we lose another experienced player, then it leaves us with a really, really young squad.

“We would then have to go elsewhere to look to bring someone in with experience to replace David.

“But hopefully David will stay. Discussions will be going on, probably next week once this Sunday’s game is over and done with. Hopefully we will be able to get something agreed.”

  • Archie's playing games with you MB. Foxy was\is a natural, proper player. We miss a midfielder of his quality\lower profile. He'd do a job for a Championship club easily. Does DF live locally I wonder? Hope not on 9-2's radar!

  • Try again. I won`t be beaten by Archie. Good chap, Fox. Proper footballer. The current unwanted men sit on Norwich City`s Board. What does Fry do? Phillips?? Hyacinth??? At least D&M + Fowlger put in some cash when it was needed. Though I`m sure they`ll recover it all in due course. Then a bit...
