Colchester United have completed the signing of striker Jabo Ibehre until the end of the season.

The 29-year-old has left MK Dons and joined the U's, where he spent three months on loan earlier in the campaign.

Ibehre made 15 league and cup appearances for Colchester, scoring four times.

U's boss Joe Dunne said: "It's a big boost for us to have Jabo back on board.

"He was a key player for us when he first came to the club on loan and it's great to have him back."

Ibehre is Dunne's seventh signing of the transfer window, following the permanent signings of Josh Thompson and Jack Compton and the loan signings of George Porter, Billy Clifford, Sam Walker and Dominic Samuel.
