JABO Ibehre has joined Colchester United on loan until the end of the year.

Just hours after announcing Joe Dunne as the new manager at the Weston Homes Community Homes Stadium, Colchester snapped up the striker on a three-month deal, which will run until December 27.

Ibehre’s opportunities in the first team have been limited to substitute appearances this season, and Dons fans haven’t seen him in the squad since the 1-0 defeat at Northampton in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

The 29-year-old has signed in time to be part of Colchester’s game with Hartlepool United this Saturday, but under the conditions of his loan deal, he will not be able to play against Dons when they visit stadium:mk on Saturday November 24.
