Sam Walker returning to Colchester United is a 'strong possibility'

Colchester United manager Joe Dunne is hopeful that Sam Walker will be returning for a second season on loan

Colchester United manager Joe Dunne took on a pair of Chelsea players last spring, bringing in both Billy Clifford and Sam Walker as United managed to pull safely away from the relegation places in the second half of the season. Dunne seemed to enjoy working with both players, and the same could be said for the players experience working with Dunne.

While Billy Clifford will likely be heading to a more challenging assignment next season, Walker could be poised for a reunion with Dunne and Colchester. Dunne had the following to say about Walker and the chances of a Colchester return next season:

"Sam returning to us is a strong possibility. I think we are in a good position. Sam enjoyed it with us last season. I think we treated him well, and his game certainly improved. He made good progress."

"It would be useful for him to make another move. I know that things can happen, and change, very quickly, but there is a strong chance of him returning."

Personally, I'd be fine with the idea of Walker returning to United next season, as he got plenty of playing time and seemed to adapt very well. He's already comfortable there, and the manager is also comfortable with him. If he's not going to be part of the Chelsea first team (and that seems unlikely at this point), it makes just as much sense to send him back to Colchester next season.
