Eastmond to move to Colchester

Craig Eastmond is set to join Colchester, on yet another loan deal.

Craig Eastmond, at 21-years old, is set for another loan spell. His 3rd in 2 years. Millwall, Wycombe and now Colchester. He’s a versatile player and has been around a while after coming up through the youth academy, making 10 appearances in the first team but the last of those was 2 seasons ago now.

Colchester are without a win in League One, and for an Arsenal player on loan it doesn’t suggest much promise. For example Henri Lansbury, went on loan to 2 Championship sides, Norwich and West Ham, both times those teams were promoted to the Premier League. Yet he was still not good enough for Arsenal’s first team, although many thought he deserved more of a chance. Furthermore, Eastmond’s ‘versatility’ is down to him attempting to learn numerous positions to find his best and give him the greatest chance with his football career, which he remains hopeful will be at Arsenal.

But is it too late for our young Craig? Hold onto him for longer and hope he finds his feet? Or get him off the wage-book?
