Millwall striker Ashley Grimes is happy to be linked with a move to Colchester United as he searches for a new club.

Grimes is due to leave Millwall over the summer, but is being tracked by several clubs after an impressive loan spell at Lincoln City.

He scored 15 goals in League Two and reports claim Leicester City and Sheffield Wednesday are keeping tabs on the 24-year-old.

League One side Colchester are also rumoured to be admirers of Grimes, who hopes to secure his next club before the start of pre-season.

"I've heard the rumours about Colchester United and it's nice to be linked to those kind of clubs," Grimes told the Gazette.

"I haven't made any decisions yet, but the aim is to be at a club ready for the start of pre-season training."
