The 19-year-old completed the paperwork at the idverde Training Ground on Monday morning and will train with his new teammates with the opening Sky Bet Championship fixture at Luton Town on Saturday.

"I am really happy to be here, it has taken a little while because I have actually had Covid, but it is all good, things like that can happen, I am really looking forward to getting started. This club have shown that they can develop younger players and I am excited to get going," he told the club's official website.

"I really enjoyed my time at Colchester, there were ups and downs, but that is football, I wish them nothing but the best for the future. I like to express myself as a footballer, try and create and score goals and enjoy it, that is the main thing."

Poku, who made his Ghana debut last term for two Africa Cup of Nation qualifiers, made 75 appearances for Colchester, scoring six goals. His last two goals for the club came in a 3-0 win over Carlisle United in March.
