Fewster Makes Colchester Move
Colchester United have signed Middlesbrough striker Bradley Fewster on a free, following two loan spells at the club.
The young forward has spent two season-long-loan's at the club, scoring 44 goals but surprisingly Middlesbrough opted against offering Fewster a new contract, allowing Colchester to make a move for the previously capped England under 18's player.
Fewster, 20, had previously had short loan spells with Preston and York, the latter helped raise a profile for the striker as he picked up a Player Of The Month award in April, as York were relegated to the National League at the end of the 2015/16 season.
Colchester are also hopeful of bringing in Fewster's strike partner from last season, Eddie Nketiah back on a loan deal. The two enjoyed a successful season last year as they proved to be the highest scoring combination within League One. The U's have allegedly had an offer accepted for Nketiah, who was also capped by England U18's last year.
Commenting on the deal, Colchester manager Paddy McLaughlin said, 'I'm delighted to bring back Bradley to the club. He has had two fantastic years with us and has helped us to two promotions, back-to-back. He has an eye for goal, but also can be a very creative player and of course, he is also improving as a young player. He has a great attitude, both on and off the pitch and is a great lad to have in the dressing room.'
