Marvin Sordell has joined Colchester United on a free transfer after being released by Burnley. Sordell, 24, will be with Colchester till the end of the current season.
Sordell, a Watford academy graduate who has represented England at U21 level and played for Team GB at the 2012 Olympics, said he was not concerned about dropping down leagues.
I’m not one of those who’s bothered whether he’s playing in front of 90,000 like I did for Team GB or 3,000 or 5,000 at Colchester. I’m like a five or 10-year-old who just wants to play football.
The choice was stay at Burnley and probably not play, or come and play some football
Sordell made 14 appearances for Burnley in the Premier League last season. The Clarets are playing in the Championship after being relegated in 2014/15.
