Sky Sports understands Arsenal midfielder Craig Eastmond is set to join Colchester on loan.

Colchester caretaker boss Joe Dunne is keen to bolster his squad and has targeted a move for highly-rated Eastmond.

Eastmond is highly-regarded within the corridors of power at the Emirates and has made 10 appearances in the first-team since progressing through the club's Academy.

The 21-year-old enjoyed a spell on loan at Millwall in 2011 and also had a stint with Wycombe last season.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is ready to sanction another loan move for the versatile performer so that he can get some valuable first-team action under his belt.

Dunne believes Eastmond will be an excellent addition to his squad as they still search for their first League One win of the campaign.
