U's loanee Pappoe returns to Chelsea for treatment
Daniel Pappoe has returned to parent club Chelsea for treatment after injuring his shoulder during a training session with Colchester United.
The powerful young defender, who is yet to make an appearance for the U's after joining them on a six-month loan from the Premier League side earlier this summer, suffered the injury last weekend during a gym session.
U's boss Joe Dunne confirmed Pappoe has returned to Chelsea where he will be assessed by their medical staff but he is hoping that the Ghanaian will report back to Colchester next month after treatment.
Dunne said: “He’s gone back to Chelsea and they’re looking after him.
“Hopefully he’ll join up with us again during the middle period of September.
“He jarred his shoulder during a weight session so hopefully it’s not too bad.
“I won’t be bringing in anyone to replace him at the moment."
