Football: Colchester have made their sixth summer signing after Akanni-Sunday Wasiu joined the club.

Geraint Williams moved swiftly to capture the 24-year-old Nigerian who was a free agent after leaving St Albans.

Sunday scored three goals in three friendlies for the U's and was snapped up to bolster Colchester's attack after Kevin Lisbie's switch to Ipswich Town.

Sunday, whose previous clubs include Latvian side FC Vilnius, has been looked at closely by Bournemouth and Brentford but The U's signed him up after a second look.

The much-travelled striker banged in three goals in 12 appearances for St Albans and was handed another trial at Colchester after a spell training with the U's last season at Layer Road.
