English striker of Ghanaian descent Michael Folivi has revealed that talks has started between Colchester United and his representatives Unique Sports over contract extension.
Folivi, 22, joined the League 2 side on a free transfer in November last year and with his deal set to expire at the end of this month, he has pointed out that the fourth tier club wants him to stay.
“There’s been dialogue between my agent and the club.” Folivi told the Colchester Gazzette
“I’m still waiting and it’s a big thing for me.”
“I think any player wants to get their future sorted out and have some family time but mentally and physically, you have to stay strong.”
“I got a glimpse of the Colchester fans and they even had their chants for me when I played my first game in front of them against Morecambe.”
“I got my goal and made a few friends that day, although I think it’s easy to make a chant out of Folivi!”
“They won me over and hopefully, I won them over.”
“I’d work my socks off for any manager but I have a personal relationship with Hayden (Mullins) and I think that’s a key thing for any player.” He added.
Folivi played 27 games this ended season netting five goals as Colchester United finished 20th on the log.
