Young front-runner Samuel has been recruited on a month’s loan from Reading, and will go straight into the squad for this Saturday’s tough away game at Doncaster Rovers.

Samuel explained: “I was very surprised to get the call from Colchester.

“But I was excited at the same time, with the chance to play first team football. It will be good to play in a different team.”

Samuel was originally with Millwall, before being released as a youngster, and he was playing Sunday League football when he was later picked up by Reading.

The 18-year-old has gone on to play for England Under-19s, and has made one senior appearance for Reading, in a 3-0 defeat at Sunderland last month.

“I’ve had a mad start to my career,” added Samuel.
