Striker Henderson has not been in the U’s squad in recent weeks, while left-back Rose has been in and out of the team without being able to hold down a regular place.

Rose revealed on his Twitter account this morning: “Had to make a big decision late last night!

“Don’t feel like I had much choice, but it was the (right) time. All the best to everyone at Colchester.

“Thanks for the lovely messages, but I think it would be unprofessional of me to say why I had to.

“I’m disappointed but have no bad feelings towards the club.”
