Teenage Colchester United striker Kwame Poku has signed a new two-and-a-half year contract at the League Two club.

Poku, 18, joined the U's from non-league Worthing at the start of the season and made his debut in their Football League Trophy game at Gillingham on 7 September.

He scored his first goal in his full home debut in the League Two game against Leyton Orient two weeks later.

"He's a real talent," head coach John McGreal told the club's website.
