Colchester United have completed the permanent signing of former West Ham United defender, Jamie Harney.

Harney moved to the U’s on loan from the Premier League side in November, but has now penned a permanent deal to keep him at the West Homes Community Stadium until the summer of 2016.

Harney has made one senior start for United, in the heavy defeat at MK Dons, and has featured regularly for the club’s under-21s team.

The Northern Ireland product, who has represented his country between under-16 and 21 level, can play at centre-half or right-back.
