The 21-year-old becomes the latest addition to arrive in E10, and has agreed a two-year deal at the Matchroom Stadium.

Bonne, who started out at Ipswich Town’s Academy and enjoyed a brief spell at Norwich City before joining Colchester at the age of 14, came through the ranks with the Essex outfit and went on to make his professional debut as a substitute at Shrewsbury Town on October 22, 2013.

Bonne then had an 18th birthday to remember four days later, as he marked his home debut with the winning goal in a 1-0 victory against Peterborough United.

Having introduced himself to the U’s fans in spectacular fashion, the forward went on to make a total of 84 appearances during his time at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Bonne, who has been capped by Zimbabwe at under-23 level, also needs no introduction to the Vanarama National League having enjoyed loan spells at both Lincoln City and Woking last season.
