U's miss out on Jones signing
Colchester United have missed out on the signing of defender Daniel Jones.
The Gazette understands that the U’s were closing in on a deal to sign the former Wolverhampton Wanderers player, after he left Championship club Sheffield Wednesday by mutual consent last week.
Jones was believed to be one of a number of targets Colchester manager Joe Dunne was chasing, as he bids to add more experience to his squad.
However, the 26-year-old, who can play in defence or midfield, has instead signed a short-term deal for League Two promotion-chasers Port Vale where he will play under former Colchester assistant manager, Micky Adams.
