Colchester United centre-half Frankie Kent has this afternoon signed a new contract.

Kent has penned a new deal, which extends his stay at the Essex club for a further two-and-a-half-years, up to the end of the 2019-20 season.

A product of the U’s Academy, Kent is currently sidelined by an ankle injury, but he remains very much in the long-term plans of manager John McGreal.

“It’s all worked out well, and I see this as another stepping stone for me,” explained Kent.

“I’ve come up through the youth system and the Academy, and I’ve gradually established myself in the first team.

“It gives me some security, which is important. That was a major part of me signing this new deal,” added Kent.
