Colchester have completed the loan signing of Bristol City's Marc Goodfellow.Colchester have completed the loan signing of Bristol City's Marc Goodfellow while Joey Keith has headed in the opposite direction.
Goodfellow arrives at Layer Road after a similar spell at League Two outfit Swansea City, with U's boss Phil Parkinson clearly delighted with his latest acquisition.
"He is a skilful player with plenty of pace who could provide the key to unlocking visiting defences at Layer Road," Parkinson told the club's official website.
"Hopefully he can add something extra in the attacking third of the pitch."
Meanwhile, Keith, a utility player capable of playing in several positions, goes straight into Brian Tinnion's squad to face Torquay at the weekend.
"Joe is a left-footed player who can bring balance to our team. He is a quality player who is good from set-pieces," said Tinnion.
"He can play at left-back, in left midfield or even on the right-side of midfield, as he has been doing at Colchester for much of the season."
It is thought that both deals could lead to permanent arrangements should either player impress.
