The U’s detailed their plans for the upcoming season with their released/retained list on Friday, which includes confirmation the central defender will be leaving.

Sowunmi joined the Glovers at the start of the 2015/16 season from Ipswich Town by then Manager, Paul Sturrock.

Despite not playing any league games for the Tractor Boys, he had played regularly with loan spells in the National League Divisions with Braintree and Lowestoft.

He would spend four seasons and Huish Park before joining Colchester for an undisclosed fee in July 2019.

Sowunmi would play 87 times in the Green and White and was named Team Captain in 2018.

We wish Omar all the best in his search for a new club, also, here’s a slightly frightening Gif of him, very happy about something ?
