Arsenal defender Cohen Bramall has signed for English League One club Colchester United on a free transfer as the new season draws nearer.

His transfer to the third tier of English football was announced earlier on Friday.

Cohen Bramall joins Colchester United on the back of his release at Arsenal this summer.

He was a free agent before the League One outfit snapped him up ahead of the new season.

Cohen Bramall became an Arsenal player while legendary manager Arsene Wenger was still the Gunners boss.

The left-back was signed shortly after a successful Arsenal trial.

Cohen Bramall was released as Arsenal manager Unai Emery didn’t fancy him despite the fact that the Gunners are in the market for a competent left-sided defender.

Celtic defender Kieran Tierney has emerged as the top transfer target for Arsenal in that position though the Scottish champions are keen to get as much money as possible for the player.

It is believed that the player will join Arsenal before the end of this transfer window.

Celtic have slammed an asking price of £25m and the Gunners are ready to meet that transfer fee but the payment structure is the only stumbling block for the deal to happen.
