Jabo Ibehre says he is still open to the possibility of joining Colchester United on a permanent basis.

But the experienced striker has stressed his main priority is to return to full fitness, following an abdominal injury.

Ibehre could leave MK Dons this month, having fallen down the pecking order at stadiummk The 29-year-old has been offered a contract by Colchester, where he spent three months on loan at the end of last year.

Ibehre said: “I had a fantastic time at Colchester.

“Everyone was magnificent with me and it will now hold a place in my heart.

“It’s somewhere I’d like to revisit once I’m fit if possible but regaining my fitness is my priority at the moment."

Love to see you return. Great player, confident and not frightened to get stuck in where it counts. You would be a great asset to the club and would be assured of many more opportunities to score lots of goals. The team creates them and we all know that you have the ability to score them and get us out of the current mire we find ourselves in. Come back as soon as possible,please! We need you! Up the U's!!

The paper says there are 21 comments prior to this one I am writing now, but I only see two. What happened to the other 19?
Anyway, I agree with Col United and Ozzie, it will be great to see Jabo back, but he needs to be fit first. That may take a longish time. Let's hope the club can sort this out before the transfer window closes.

I can only guess Jabo's injury was a hernia which will take a little time to heal properly. Hope he heals quickly enough to help us out of the mess we're in.

Jabo would love to see you back as you are an honest professional who always gives of his best. Hurry back!
