Colchester United have added to their squad with the signing of former Rotherham United defender, Richard Brindley, the club’s official website have confirmed.
The right-back has signed on a free transfer and in putting pen-to-paper on a two-year contract becomes the club’s first summer signing.
Brindley helped the U’s to League One safety last season during a loan spell which saw him play eight times for Tony Humes’ side.
Such was the player’s influence on the squad, the U’s picked up 14 points from the matches which featured the former Millers player.
He was in the starting line-up when the side picked up a dramatic late winner against Preston North End on the final day of the season to ensure League One football for another season.
His move is subject to paperwork clearance from the Football League and he will officially be a Colchester player on the 1st July.
