“Hopefully everything goes ok with medicals and the other bits and pieces, so hopefully that goes through,” Lambert said.

“It wasn’t just right-back because there are a few positions where we’re not strong enough. Myles is the only left-back we have and if Kane comes he can play there as well. It’s not his favourite position but we don’t have cover in certain areas.”

Lambert went on to give Tractor Boys fans a hint of what is to come from the Colchester man.

“He’s young, athletic, strong and has played a lot of games after having a good upbringing at Tottenham. If it does happen then we’ve got a really good player.”

The defender made his way into the senior game with Colchester United after being released by Spurs in 2014. becoming a fixture in the side over the course of the past five seasons. In his time in East Anglia, Vincent-Young has played 125 games, scoring four goals and providing five assists in the process.
