Gambin in Newport loan switch

Colchester United winger, Luke Gambin, has joined the U’s Sky Bet League Two rivals, Newport County on a loan deal running until the conclusion of the current campaign.

The Maltese international has made fifty appearances for the North Essex outfit since joining the club in 2019. Speaking to about the players’ departure, U’s boss, Steve Ball explained: “I have been in regular conversation with Gambs and it’s understandable that he has been frustrated with his lack of game time recently.”

“I’ve said publicly that we would always look at potential loans for players that aren’t in the squad, and this is one that suits every party.

“Hopefully, he gets that game time at Newport and we wish him all the best there.”
