Defender Eventually Stays
Luke Prosser had at first rejected a new deal with Southend, however his Southend future has now been secured.
Phil Brown had retained hope of a deal being agreed and is delighted that it has, he said: 'He's a player I like a lot because he can play at left-back or the left side of defence.
'He works hard and showed a very good attitude towards the end of the last campaign, he'll have a big part to play this season.'
The 25-year-old has agreed a two-year deal with the option of a third, and I'd not be at all surprised to see the defender stay for its duration, at least!
