Midfielder joins on a permanent basis.
Colchester United are delighted to announce the signature of Craig Eastmond on a permanent basis.
Craig made a huge impression whilst on loan from Arsenal in the early weeks of Joe Dunne's reign as manager, helping the U's to six wins and a draw in his two months in the blue and white stripes.
A broken foot cut short his time at the Weston Homes Community Stadium but, with the 22-year-old out of contract with the Gunners this summer, Joe moved quickly to secure him as his first signing of the summer on a two year contract.
The midfielder will join up with the rest of the squad in pre-season, as the U's prepare for another year in League One.
Craig's move is subject to paperwork clearance and he will officially become a U's player on July 1st when his Arsenal deal expires.
