Marcus Bean signs for Colchester

Colchester have brought in out of contract former Brentford man Marcus Bean.

27-year-old Bean left Brentford last month and has now joined The U's, or will do officially when his contract ends at the end of this month, on a three-year contract.

John Ward, as he told the official website, knows of the midfielders qualities but also feels that him being slightly more experienced will help the younger players too: 'he is a big, strong midfielder who brings power to that part of the pitch.

'He has a good pedigree and has proven he can cope with being at the top end of this division.

'We have young lads on two-year deals and we need a structure above them.

'Marcus is a player who will set a good example to the young boys in the club, as well as making our first team competitive and a strong group.'

Do you think that Bean is a good signing for Colchester?
