U's In Talks to Extend Ephraim stay

Ephraim has made just six substitute appearances for The U's since joining on loan in November but manager Geraint Williams is keen to keep hold of the 18-year-old striker.

"He's a bubbly character with loads of ability and he's exactly what we like at this club," Williams has told BBC Essex.

"We'd love him to stay, we're in talks.

"Hopefully we can sort something out."
