U's extend Monakana loan spell
Colchester United have extended the loan spell of winger Jeffrey Monakana from League One rivals Preston North End until December.
The 19-year-old initially joined the U's on a month's loan but will now stay at the Weston Homes Community Stadium until the beginning of December.
However, Monakana will be ineligible for Colchester's trip to play Preston on November 23 and will not be allowed to play for the U's in the FA Cup.
Former Arsenal youngster Monakana has made five appearances for the U's since arriving last month, including a goalscoring debut in the 2-2 draw at Bradford City.
Colchester boss Joe Dunne was anxious to keep Monakana among his attacking options, with Sanchez Watt and Drey Wright both set to be sidelined for a number of weeks.
