Colchester United have completed the signing of Carlisle goalkeeper Ben Williams for an undisclosed fee.

The ex-Manchester United trainee has signed a two-year deal after passing a medical and agreeing personal terms.

But the two clubs a fee for the 26-year-old former Crewe man earlier this week.

Williams is the U's fifth summer signing, with Ashley Vincent, David Fox, Lee Beevers and Magnus Okuonghae having already put pen-to-paper, while Alan Maybury and Pat Baldwin have signed contract extensions.

He is likely to be available for the U's pre-season match at Tiptree United on Saturday.
