It has been a busy day at Colchester United, with their midfield duo of George Moncur and Alex Gilbey both finally severing ties with the Essex club.

Moncur has agreed terms with new Championship outfit Barnsley, having had one year still to run on his contract with the U’s. The fee is undisclosed

Gilbey, meanwhile, has this afternoon joined Wigan Athletic on a three-year deal. His contract with the U’s had already expired, with the Latics and U’s having agreed a compensation package.

On the plus side, though, the U’s have today recruited defender Luke Prosser on a two-year deal from Southend.

And attacking midfielder Sammie Szmodics has signed a new three year deal which will keep him at Colchester until the summer of 2019.
