Arsenal midfielder Glen Kamara joins Colchester United on loan

Arsenal academy midfielder Glen Kamara has joined League Two Colchester United on loan until January.

Kamara made one first-team appearance last season in a League Cup loss at Sheffield Wednesday before joining Southend United for the second half of the campaign.

The 20-year-old Finland youth international will get another opportunity to gain first-team experience by playing in the English fourth tier.

"We wish Glen well," Arsenal said in a statement.
