The midfielder spent two months on loan from Arsenal at the Weston Homes Community Stadium between September and November, scoring twice in 13 appearances before his stay was curtailed by a broken foot.

And U's boss Joe Dunne has wasted little time swooping for Eastmond after he was released by the Gunners at the end of the season.

The 22-year-old will officially become a Colchester player on July 1 when his contract at the Emirates Stadium expires.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
