Colchester United have completed the signing of promising winger Courtney Senior from Championship club Brentford.

The U's have snapped up the 18-year-old on a two-year deal from the Bees.

Senior made his first-team debut for Brentford against Oxford United in the Capital One Cup at the start of last season and has previously spent time on loan at the U’s’ rivals, Wycombe Wanderers.

Senior trained with Colchester for the first time this morning, as the U's reported back for pre-season training ahead of the new League Two season.
