Ian Henderson is now officially a Colchester United player after sealing a free transfer move to the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
The versatile former Norwich city player – who has been on the boarder of signing for a few days – was given clearance and has now inked a contract. Henderson, 24, has been training with the U’s for the past couple of weeks, even travelling with the squad to last week’s FA Cup match.
U’s boss Aidy Boothroyd, who is a big admirer of the attacker, told the club’s official website: “He is a player that can play in a number of positions; he can play up front, wide right and in central midfield.”
The signing of Henderson is the U’s third permenant deal of the January transfer window, with the Thetford-born player adding strong competition to the U’s squad.
“He is a tenacious, horrible player to play against, he never stops running and is technically a good player,” Boothroyd concluded.
Vital Colchester would like to welcome Ian and wish him the best of luck in his time here.
