Wolves defender Danny Batth has joined the U's, to bolster the backline, on loan for a month.
The young centre-half, 19, joins Aidy Boothroyd's ambitious Colchester United, to gain experience after progressing through the Wolves acedemy. Batth has yet to pull on the The Wanderers shirt, but is highly-rated at Molineux, and penned a contract in the summer.
U's defenders Pat Baldwin, Paul Reid and Lee Beevers are all curently sidelined with injury - so Batth arrives to add cover and competition.
Boothroyd, who swooped to sign Kayode Odejayi yesterday, told BBC Essex: 'He's very quick, he's athletic and he's a good one-on-one defender, he's everything you need in a centre-half.'
Very high-praise indeed, Aidy!
Vital Colchester would like to welcome Danny and wish him the best of luck in his time with the U's.
