Colchester United have been linked with a loan move for young Arsenal midfielder Craig Eastmond.

The 21-year-old is highly regarded at the Emirates and has made ten appearances for the Gunners first team.

The versatile Eastmond has already enjoyed loan spells at Millwall and Wycombe Wanderers.

U's caretaker boss Joe Dunne revealed to the Gazette yesterday that he was considering making loan signings, in a bid to lift Colchester up the table.
