Last updated : 25 August 2006 By Nik Taylor

Peter Taylor is believed to be readying a bid for Colchester defender Greg Halford.

Taylor is looking to complete more transfers before the close of the window, and has admitted his interest in 21-year-old Halford.

"We are trying to bring in some players, be it a wide right midfielder or a striker,'' said Taylor.

"I am aware of Greg Halford, he is a player I like and know very well."

Halford plays at the back for Colchester, but can also play in a wide midfield role or even up front.
