Although the 21-year-old has only bagged five league goals this term, the on-loan Portsmouth striker has an impressive four strikes in six FA Cup ties.
The Basingstoke-born hit-man did his chances of securing a permanent move away from Pompey no harm with a hat-trick against Coventry in their cup replay.
"What I'm hoping for on loan is to just basically be in the shop window, with people saying go there and do the best job I can do," said Vine.
"I can only give myself a better chance of playing regularly. I'm at Colchester, playing my best, and we'll see what happens."
