Jermaine Grandison is delighted to have put pen to paper on a contract with Colchester United, until the end of the season.

Centre-half Grandison, without a club since last summer, played 175 first-team games for his former club, Shrewsbury Town, from 2011.

Now the 26-year-old is looking to resurrect his career with the League Two U’s.

“Signing for Colchester United is a good Christmas present,” enthused Grandison, following this morning’s training session at Florence Park, Tiptree.

“I’ve had a few months without playing any games, so I’m just happy to sign.
