&widthColchester United today announced their second signing of the January transfer window, with loan ace John-Joe O'Toole penning a permenant contract.
The 21-year-old combative midfielder has represented himself well during a four-month loan spell in North Essex; so the new of the transfer is no big surprise. Boss Aidy Boothroyd, who is a big fan of the Irishman, has reiterated his desire to keep O'Toole for longer time and time again.
The highly-rated O'Toole arrives from parent club Watford, a side currently feeling the financial pinch. He has signed a two-and-a-half year deal with the U's, although o details of the fee involved have so far been released by the club.
"He has been brilliant since he has been here and I was always keen to sign him permanently," Boothroyd told the U's official website.
Forward Kayode Odejayi has already agreed a full-time transfer, a move that is likely to be signed, sealed and delivered sometime today.
And Boothroyd, commenting on the Odejayi deal too, was understandably delighted: "We have got two new signings at the club for the start of January and I am delighted."
However, on a sour note comes the news that O'Toole - who picked up his tenth yellow card of the season against Southampton - will miss the next two games.
Vital Colchester would like to congratulate John-Joe on his permenant move and wish him the best of luck in his time here.
