COLCHESTER United have completed the signing of former Brentford midfielder Marcus Bean .

The 27-year-old made 168 appearances during a four-year stint with the Bees, scoring 15 goals, but boss Uwe Rosler decided not to offer the former QPR youngster a new deal at Griffin Park .

And League One rivals Colchester have wasted no time in snapping up Bean after agreeing a three-year contract at the Community Stadium.
