Colchester United have signed defender Miles Welch-Hayes.

The 23-year-old has been a free agent since leaving Macclesfield Town at the end of January and has agreed a contract that will keep him at the U's until the summer of 2022.

He joined Macc in the summer of 2018 and played 48 times for the club.

Welch-Hayes was one of three Macclesfield players who had their contracts terminated after an English Football League hearing last month.

"I had a few options, but this is the best one for me, I'm very happy to be here," he told the club website.external-link
