O'Toole enjoyed a loan spell with the Pirates last season and has now signed a three-year contract at the Memorial Ground.

U's boss Dunne believes the 24-year-old has made a good career decision.

He told the club's official website: "I think John-Joe has made the right choice of club for this move.

"In the current market he was in a positive position of having a choice and I feel he's made the right one for himself.

"His opportunities here would have been limited with the competition for places in the centre of midfield.

"On behalf of everyone at the club, I would like to wish him well and thank him for his time at the club."

O'Toole signed for Colchester in January 2010 and made a total of 76 appearances during his time in north Essex.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
