Colchester United have signed Charlton Athletic winger/striker Callum Harriott on loan until January.

The Addicks academy graduate has made 76 appearances for his Championship employers, having made his senior debut against Rochdale in April 2011.

The 21-year-old has played in two games this season, with his only start coming in Tuesday’s victory at Peterborough.

He will go straight into the U’s squad for tomorrow’s League One visit of Scunthorpe, alongside fellow new signing Owen Garvan.
