Southend United midfielders Stephen McLaughlin and Dru Yearwood have both signed new contracts with the League One club.

McLaughlin, 27, who initially joined on loan from Nottingham Forest in 2015, has signed a three-year contract.

He helped the Blues to promotion via the play-offs in his first season and made the move permanent in August 2015.

The Irishman told Southend's website: "Now I know my future I can really look forward to the next few years."

Yearwood, 17, joined Southend at the age of 11 and has signed a four-year deal after impressing during pre-season training with the first team.
