Colchester United have re-signed forward Freddie Sears from Ipswich Town after six years away from the JobServe Community Stadium, subject to the approval of the usual relevant bodies.
Freddie rejoins the U's after leaving for Ipswich in January of 2015, signing for the Tractor Boys after hitting thirty-six goals in 109 appearances between 2012 and 2015.
Now thirty-one-years-old, Sears has been at Portman Road for the past six-and-a-half seasons including four of those in the Championship, challengeing for play-off spot in his first couple of seasons.
His time at Ipswich Town has seen him make 217 appearances for the Suffolk side, with thirty-four goals coming in his time with the club.
A fan favourite from his first spell with Colchester United, Freddie initially signed for the U's on loan from West Ham United before making the move permanent in the summer of 2012.
Upon signing his two-year contract with the U's, Freddie said he was delighted to be back in north Essex.
"It means more coming back, just raring to get going. Coming back to the stadium, going back to the training ground, and seeing everyone again makes it feel special and I'm raring to get going again.
"I can't wait to get back in with the boys and looking to the new season ahead."
