Colchester United boss Aidy Boothroyd has confirmed he is awaiting international clearance to complete the signing of Ian Henderson.
Skysports.com revealed over the weekend that the former Norwich City striker is training with Colchester as he seeks a return to English football.
Henderson has cancelled his contract with Ankaragucu after spending just six months in Turkey and is set to agree a deal to join the Us.
Boothroyd is keen to add the 24-year-old to his squad and is waiting for the necessary paperwork to be finalised before confirming the signing.
"Ian has been training with us," Boothroyd told The Gazette. "I'm looking to get international clearance from the Turkish club.
"He's someone I want to bring in.
"He can play all across the front line or central midfield.
"He's tenacious, very aggressive and he's a good footballer, as well - he will add to what we have got."
