Colchester United have completed the signing of Arsenal forward, Sanchez Watt, on a two-year contract.

The 22-year-old only made six loan appearances for the U’s last season, before suffering a hamstring injury, but scored two goals and made a big impact at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Watt, who has also enjoyed loan spells at clubs such as Crawley, Leeds United and Sheffield Wednesday, joins fellow former Gunner Craig Eastmond at the Essex club – the defensive midfielder, 22, joining Joe Dunne’s outfit earlier in the summer.
