Defender Luke O'Neill has joined Southend United on a two-year deal after Burnley cancelled his contract by mutual consent.

O'Neill, 24, initially joined Southend on a month-long loan last month, but is yet to feature for the League One club.

In another previous loan spell at Roots Hall in 2014, the former Leicester trainee made one appearance.

He featured in only one league game for Burnley since moving to the Clarets from Mansfield Town in 2012.
