THEO Robinson has revealed how Blues boss Sol Campbell tried to sign him for Macclesfield Town in the summer.

Robinson has returned to Colchester United on loan for the remainder of the season.

But the striker has no idea why he was brought back to the Shrimpers before another loan spell with the U’s was agreed.

“I didn’t really want to go back but it’s done now and I’m looking forward to playing football at Colchester,” said Robinson.

“The funny thing about it is that the manager wanted me in the summer when he was at Macclesfield.

“I don’t know why I went back (to Southend).

“I was involved and playing football (at Colchester) and to go back there and being undecided about my future was a bit of an annoying and frustrating thing.

“But I’m very pleased to be back now, to say the least.

“On my part, I always wanted to be back here.”

And Robinson feels much happier with the U's who are pushing for promotion from League Two.

“It was a frustrating few days; my partner and I said that my mood changed in the three days I was back there to being at Colchester this whole time," said Robinson.

“I’m here now and in high spirits and looking forward to being part of things at Colchester.”
