Colchester United have been linked with a move for veteran striker Dexter Blackstock.

The U’s are in the market for a striker after the departure of last season’s top scorer Chris Porter, who left for Crewe Alexandra earlier in the summer.

Blackstock, 31, had his contract terminated by Rotherham United this week, having scored one goal in 17 appearances last season.

He spent the previous seven seasons with Nottingham Forest, scoring 45 goals in 189 games.

He’s also played for QPR, Derby, Plymouth, Southampton and Oxford in a lengthy career, averaging 0.24 goals per league game.

What do you think? Would Blackstock be a good signing for the U’s?
