SOUTHEND United striker Theo Robinson is ready to hold talks about his future.

The 30-year-old's loan spell at Colchester United is set to end next week.

And Robinson will be both holding discussions with both Essex clubs. 

“I’ll sit down with the clubs and go from there," said Robinson.

"But for me, it’s all about playing football – that’s the main thing.

“I’ll need to have a conversation with managers and the staff.

“I’m doing well and the team is doing well, so if I’m continuing to do that then I’ll be staying here.

“As a striker, you want to play every game but it’s a team game and you want to keep working hard and pushing.

“I just want to keep going and helping the team as much as I can.”

Robinson scored twice in Colchester’s impressive 3-1 win at Leyton Orient on Boxing Day and has netted six goals in 18 appearances for the U's.

The striker rejoined the Shrimpers in January 2017 and has scored 13 goals in 83 appearances during his second spell at Roots Hall.

Robinson was previously on loan with Blues during the 2008/09 season.
