Dobra Joins On Loan

Albanian forward signs for U's on season-long loan

31 August 2021

Colchester United are delighted to announce the loan signing of twenty-year-old Armando Dobra on a season-long deal from Ipswich Town.

Dobra has put pen-to-paper on a deal that will keep him at the JobServe Community Stadium until the end of the 2021/22 season on loan from the U's Suffolk neighbours, Ipswich Town. 

The tricky attacker shone in the pre-season friendly against the Tractor Boys earlier in the summer, and will provide another attacking option for Hayden Mullins' front line. 

Playing thirty times for Ipswich Town, Dobra has also gained international experience in his short career, with several appearances for Albanian youth sides.

U's Director of Football Tony Humes happy with the youngster joining on loan, saying: "Armando is a great signing for the club. He had plenty of interest from sides in League One, but chose to join Colchester United. 

"He will provide another option for Hayden to use this season, and we can't wait to see him get going."

We will try and bring you the first interview with the latest U's recruit on tomorrow night's episode on Col U TV. 

Armando will wear number 19 in his time with Colchester United.
