Colchester United defender Wayne Brown says he is still 'desperate' to leave the club.

Brown believes he has made it clear to Colchester chairman Robbie Cowling, and U's manager Geraint Williams, that he wants a transfer.

However, Cowling issued a statement on Wednesday insisting that no offers had come in for the 29-year-old.

Brown has been participating in pre-season training, but he admits he is now growing frustrated that he cannot leave the club.

"It's a strange situation to be in and to be honest it's not that pleasant," Brown told EADT.

"I'm still desperate to leave Colchester United and I've made that very clear with my chats with the manager and the chairman.

"I've put in a transfer request, but I haven't heard back from the club whether that request has been accepted or rejected.

"I'm in limbo at the moment, to be totally honest it's not the situation that I wanted to be in during pre-season.

"Hopefully another club comes in with a bid in the next day or two, because my head and heart are not with Colchester United."

Brown had been strongly linked with a move to Hull, but Cowling said in his statement that the Tigers had not followed up initial interest with an offer that would be favourable for the U's.

Brown has made 137 starts since joining the U's in July 2004 when a two-month loan at Layer Road was made permanent.
