Southend United have signed midfielder Ben Reeves on a one-month loan deal from Premier League side Southampton.

The 21-year-old came through the Saints youth ranks, and has appeared six times for them this term.

Last season he enjoyed a similar loan spell at Dagenham & Redbridge, making five appearances.

"He's someone we identified as a player we feel can help us push for promotion," Shrimpers manager Paul Sturrock told the club website.external-link

"He has played in the Premier League this season so it just shows how highly the young lad is rated. He will offer us something different."
