Colchester United goalkeeper Sam Walker has signed a new contract to extend his stay with the club.
Walker joined the U's on a permanent basis in January 2014 after two loan spells. He's signed a new two year contract, which secures his future through to the summer of 2018.
Walker picked an injury in the Capital One Cup tie against Reading in August. It's been four months since he was last on the pitch, but he's making good progress on his recovery.
"I am absolutely delighted to have secured my future with the club. We've been talking for a while and I am really pleased to get it sorted.I am pleased that I have got a bit of security to come back to after my injury recovery is complete.
I am looking forward to the new year because I'll be on the home straight then and it won’t be too long until I'm back around it and doing some sort of work on the training ground."
Kevin Keen makes his managerial debut with the U's on Saturday when they host Southend.

The club had been searching for Tony Humes' successor since he left by mutual consent in November.
The club confirmed the news on Twitter:
Colchester United have called a press conference for 2pm this afternoon (21 December) to announce their new manager.
The U's are expected to appoint former Reading assistant Kevin Keen after he was in the stands for their defeat at Rochdale on Saturday.
