Watt joined the U's on a three-month loan agreement from Arsenal last season but saw his stay cut short after just five weeks having torn his hamstring, netting two goals and providing three assists during his seven appearances.

Watt follows in the footsteps of former Arsenal team-mate Craig Eastmond, who also spent time on loan at Colchester last term and opted to join the U's on a two-year deal earlier this summer.
