Striker ready to help U's cause.
The incoming personnel during the first half of January are a mixture of loan deals and permanent deals but in the main, they have been young players hungry to improve their games in their time at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
Over the past few weeks, there has been an influx of players as boss Joe Dunne continues to reshape the U’s for the second half of the season.
Jabo Ibehre returned to the U’s on Tuesday and is also acutely aware of the predicament he is coming into in north Essex.
"These things can be passed onto the younger lads in the squad, the new ones and the ones who were already here, and I hope to be able to do that.
"And I’m sure it will come down to more than just the team, we’ll need the whole squad to be pulling together to pull ourselves away from the relegation zone.
"I wouldn’t have come here if I didn’t think we could do well and we have enough quality in the squad to get out of trouble.”
He continued: "I had an awesome time here at Colchester last time and I’ve kept in touch with the players and the manager here, along with Tony Flynn who I knew from my early days at Leyton Orient.
“I left the U’s a bit early during my loan spell before Christmas, after picking up an injury in the game at Walsall. There was only one game left of the loan so I went back to MK Dons to get treatment and to work on my recovery.
“Coming back was always on the agenda but I wanted to concentrate on getting over my injury and back to full fitness. I have had a great time at MK Dons over the past few years but I’m looking forward to a great new chapter in my career.
