TOWN SIGN KANE VINCENT-YOUNG

19 August 2019

Full-back pens four-year deal at Portman Road

Town have completed the signing of Kane Vincent-Young for an undisclosed fee from Colchester United.

The full-back put pen to paper on a four-year deal with Blues, keeping him at Portman Road until the summer of 2023.

The Club has the option to extend the deal a further 12 months.

Kane, who is a product of the Tottenham Hotspur academy, operates primarily as a right-back but can also play on the left side of defence.

After getting released by Spurs in 2014, he had a brief spell with Banbury United before joining Colchester's academy in September the same year.

He impressed during pre-season ahead of the 2015/16 campaign and made his debut for the U's on 8 August 2015 in a 2-2 draw against Blackpool.

Kane scored his first professional goal on 26 August 2017 as Colchester beat Forest Green Rovers 5-1 at home. His strike won the club's 'Goal of the Year' award, while Kane also took home the 'Young Player of the Year' trophy following an impressive season.

In total he made 126 appearances for the Essex side, scoring four goals.

The 23-year-old will wear the number 24 shirt at Portman Road.
