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.

Colchester boss Joe Dunne was a big admirer of the 22-year-old and, following his release by the Gunners this summer, has fought off plenty of competition to bring him back to the Weston Homes Community Stadium on a permanent deal.

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.

haos reached its ultimate reckoning last weekend with Tony Hibbert looking assured at left back and Osman looking like a cultured ball playing midfielder before busting a gut to get to the back post for a Samuel Eto'o ball. Different chaos but chaos. If Kone scores the winner tonight I fear the world will end.
