Colchester United’s Kane Vincent-Young insists he is not thinking about potential interest from bigger clubs.

The 21-year-old has produced some impressive performances at left wing-back for the U’s this season, prompting attention from a growing number of watching scouts.

Vincent is one of a number of young U’s players who are catching the eye in League Two ahead of the January transfer window, but the former Spurs academy player has stressed he is not thinking about any rumours.

Vincent-Young told the Daily Gazette: “I’ve not thought about any speculation at all.

"Every day, I come in ready to enjoy training building up to Saturday, ready to enjoy the match.

“That’s the cycle right now and I’m really happy here. I’m enjoying my football and I just want that to continue.”

Vincent-Young has been part of a Colchester team that have been one of the form sides in League Two, over recent months.

John McGreal’s outfit have lost only two of their last 13 league games and only goal difference is keeping them out of the play-off places, ahead of their home game with Port Vale on Saturday.

“We’re doing really well at the moment,” said the versatile defender.

“It’s such a good place to be and the dressing room is a good place to be – we’re performing on the pitch so long may it continue.

“We have an important Christmas period now and we need to keep that momentum going.”

Vincent-Young was speaking at the club’s annual Christmas visit to the Children’s Unit at Colchester General Hospital.

He joined the likes of Sam Walker, Luke Prosser and Brennan Dickenson in handing out presents and chatting to children on the ward.

Vincent-Young added: “The families and children were in good spirits.

“There’s never a never a nice time for someone to be ill especially around Christmas time, when everything is orientated around being with family and friends.

“It’s sad to see but a lot of the people we spoke to should be out by Christmas, so hopefully that’s the case.”
