Colchester United have signed Arsenal duo Craig Eastmond and Sanchez Watt on loan.

Eastmond, 21, can play in either defence or midfield and has enjoyed loan spells at Millwall and Wycombe Wanderers.

Striker Watt has had spells on loan at Leeds United, Sheffield Wednesday, Southend United and Crawley Town.

The 21-year-old has represented England under-19, under-17 and under-16 level.

The young pair will go straight into the U's squad for their home game with Hartlepool United tomorrow.

The arrival of Eastmond and Watt at Colchester adds to that of Jabo Ibehre, who joined them on a three-month loan deal from League One rivals MK Dons earlier today.
