COLCHESTER United have signed Plymouth Argyle right-back Tafari Moore on loan until the end of the season.

The U's have snapped up the 22-year-old to boost their defensive cover, following Cohen Bramall's ankle injury.

Moore went straight into the Colchester side to face Macclesfield Town on Saturday afternoon, replacing suspended Ryan Jackson.

Moore started his career in the Arsenal academy and spent a season on loan at Dutch side FC Utrecht, in the 2016-17 season.

The England under-20 international also had a loan spell at Wycombe Wanderers before leaving Arsenal at the end of his contract to join Plymouth Argyle, in 2018.

Plymouth boss Ryan Lowe confirmed last October that Moore was available for loan.

He has played only twice for Argyle this season, both times as a right wing-back.
