MATTHEW Briggs will spend the final six months of his Millwall contract on loan at Colchester United.
Briggs has made 12 appearances under Ian Holloway since signing from Fulham last summer but it seems unlikely he will pull on the Lions' shirt again.
The left back has this afternoon completed a switch to League One strugglers Colchester and could make his debut against Leyton Orient this weekend.
"It's a great chance for me to play some regular football," Briggs told his new club's official site.
"As a footballer, you want to play all the time but the manager has changed the team around recently and this gives me a chance to further my career.
"I've heard Colchester are a good footballing team and I already know a few of the lads. I went to school with Craig Eastmond, so I'm sure that will help me settle in."
