Midfielder agrees to stay with the Blues.
Southend United are delighted to announce that midfielder Gary Deegan has signed a new one-year contract with the Club.
Part of Gary's deal also has an option to extend for a second year.
Deegan joined on short-term deals throughout last season and played a big part in the Blues' promotion – via the play-offs – to Sky Bet League 1.
Boss Phil Brown was thrilled to tie up the combative midfielder to a long-term contract.
“One of the things we are aiming to continue from last season is momentum, and keeping the nucleus of the squad together.
“Gary certainly played his part last season and I'm really pleased to finally get him signed up. It's taken a while but we're delighted to keep him here.”
