Southend United have signed West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Luke Daniels on an emergency 28-day loan.

Daniels, 23, goes straight into the Shrimpers' squad for Tuesday's League Two match at Barnet.

He has moved to Roots Hall as cover for first-choice keeper Glenn Morris, who will be out with a thigh strain for up to four weeks.

Daniels has previously had loan spells at Bristol Rovers, Shrewsbury Town and Tranmere Rovers.

The only other goalkeeper on Southend's books is teenager Daniel Bentley, who made his debut when coming off the bench in Saturday's 4-1 win over Torquay United.
