’s agent confirms interest in the Colchester United star’s services.

Brindley, 23, has been linked with a surprise move to Egypt and Africa giants Zamalek, with his agent Lee Payne confirming to KingFut talks had taken place.

Brindley and recent Al Ahly acquisition Souleymane Coulibaly share the same agent and after the Ivorian’s blistering start to his career in Egypt since his move from Scotland, the links of Brindley might not come as a surprise to many.

“It’s very early days I’d say. I think this came about due to the Coulibaly deal and other players they and other clubs have been looking at in U.K. for a while,” Payne tells KingFut.

“I think you will see a lot more UK players coming out there.”

Payne went on to confirm talks for the player, whose contract runs out in the summer, are well underway.

“Yes we’ve been talking to them and a couple of others about a number of UK players one of whom is Richard. I don’t understand why or how this story has emerged now,” he revealed.

Brindley has Egyptian heritage as his grandfather is originally from Egypt, which would make his move to Egypt much simpler due to the fact that he would not be registered as a foreign player by the FA.

The full-back, who can play on both flanks of the pitch, has enjoyed a fruitful season at the League Two side, recording six assists to his name.

Zamalek are on the lookout for a new full-back and it is most likely they will be re-signing their former player Mohamed Abdel-Shafy from Al Ahli Jeddah.
