League Two Colchester United have signed winger Olamide Shodipo on loan from Queens Park Rangers until the end of the season.

Olamide came through the ranks at Loftus Road and made his senior debut last season, in their 3-0 win over Leeds.

The 20-year-old has also featured for Republic of Ireland's U19s and U21s.

Olamide could feature in the U's squad for the weekend game against Newport County.

Colchester have also signed Doncaster Rovers striker Liam Mandeville and Wolves midfielder Ben Stevenson on loan deals until the end of the season.

Stevenson, 20, joined Wolves from Coventry City earlier in the day.

The U's have managed to complete a permanent deal too, with Charlton Athletic defender Aaron Barnes agreeing to move to Essex.

Meanwhile, defender Lewis Kinsella had his contract cancelled by mutual consent.
