Colchester have made their second signing of the day, bringing in Matthew Briggs on loan from Millwall for the rest of the season.
Defender Briggs, who made his senior debut at Fulham at 16 and has represented England from Under-16 to Under-21 level, trained with the U's on Thursday and is likely to make his debut against Leyton Orient on Saturday.
The 23-year-old told Colchester's official website: "It's a great chance for me to play some regular football.
"As a footballer, you want to play all the time but the (Millwall) manager has changed the team around recently and this gives me a chance to further my career.
"I've heard Colchester are a good footballing team and I already know a few of the lads. I went to school with Craig Eastmond, so I'm sure that will help me settle in."
