U's midfielder Craig Eastmond believes the tight-knit feel around the club was a big part in convincing him to sign for the club on a permanent basis.

Craig will become an official U's player this summer when his contract at Arsenal expires.

And he believes that the close family-like feel was a key factor in getting him to join the Weston Homes Community Stadium side.

He told the official website: "I enjoyed my time here on loan and now I just want to carry on where I left off. This is a place that feels good to me and one that has made me feel part of a family.

You want to feel happy as a footballer with your friends, team-mates and manager, and that’s the case here. I like the manager’s style of play and my main attribute is getting on the ball, so it is good for me. 

"I am of an age where I want to play week in, week out and I think I can do that here in the next step of my career."

Craig’s move will be completed subject to paperwork clearance from the relevant authorities.
