Colchester United have signed duo Kaan Bennett and Emmanuel Martins.
Both the youngsters have been on trial for the U's recently, but have now signed contracts here in north Essex.
It is expected that they will be starting their U's careers with action in the Academy, but as with all young players who come into the fold at the U's, the ambition is for them to eventually find themselves around the first team squad.
Academy Manager Dave Hussey told cu-fc.com: "Both Kaan and Manny have impressed us in their time here on trial, and fully deserve their contracts."
"They have settled in well, and we hope they continue to work hard to fulfil the potential we have certainly seen in them."
