COLCHESTER United have completed the signing of forward Aramide Oteh on loan from Championship side QPR.

The 22-year-old, who had previously been on loan at the U's League Two rivals Stevenage this season, has arrived at the JobServe Community Stadium until the end of the campaign.

Oteh, who started his career with Spurs prior to joining QPR in the summer of 2017, has also had loan spells for Walsall and Bradford City.

He is set to be available for the U's upcoming game at Morecambe, on Saturday.

Oteh has made four league appearances for QPR since making his debut for them in a Championship game at Millwall in December, 2017.

He scored his first professional goal for Rangers in their 3-1 win at Burton Albion, the following month.

In total, he has made 22 league and cup appearances for QPR, scoring twice.

In the 23 league starts he has made in his career to date, Oteh has hit ten goals.

After spending time on loan at Bradford and Walsall, the young striker joined Stevenage on loan in October, 2020.

He netted four goals in his seven starts and six substitute appearances for Boro, in League Two.

Colchester have been on the hunt for a new striker since Luke Norris left to join their League Two rivals Stevenage, earlier this month.

They were last week linked with a move for Freddie Sears but were unable to secure the former West Ham United forward's return, from Ipswich Town.

Theo Robinson has also been linked with the U's, after he was de-registered by Port Vale.
