Luke Hannant swapped newly-promoted Cambridge United for Colchester United, expressing his excitement over the challenge ahead at the JobServe Community Stadium.
“Last season was obviously a good one for me and Cambridge, being able to get a promotion under the belts was a great achievement for us all.
“But I was ready for a different challenge. I feel I’m an established League Two player now and the project that the manager said is in place for this season is something I really want to be a part of.” the 27-year-old explained.
Having made 48 appearances for the Sky Bet League Two runners-up during the last campaign, Hannant has penned a two-year deal at the JobServe Community Stadium.
Previously, the player represented Gateshead and South Shields before moving to Port Vale, turning out 68 times for the Burslem outfit.
Meanwhile, Colchester has confirmed that yan Clampin has signed a new two-year contract with the club.
The left-sided defender told Col U TV: “We’ve been speaking over the summer months and have now finally got it sorted.
“It’s always nice to play for your club and I’ve been here so long as well. I know all the staff and get on with all the boys so it was nice to get it over the line.
“I’m looking forward to the next couple of years, especially knowing now that I have solidified that spot a bit more. I’m excited.”
