Fans' favourite extends deal with Blues
Southend United are delighted to announce Nile Ranger has signed a contract extension that commits his long-term future to the club.
Ranger has put pen to paper on a deal tying him down to the end of the 2019/20 season.
The forward has made a big impact at Roots Hall since signing in the summer, playing a big role in Blues’ current seven game unbeaten run in Sky Bet League One.
Blues are also yet to taste defeat when Ranger has started, winning five and drawing three of the eight games.
His long-awaited debut came in a 3-0 win away at Sheffield United in August which included an assist for the third goal.
Injury then sidelined Ranger for six weeks until a return to the starting line-up in the 1-0 win at home to Chesterfield.
The 25-year-old has scored two goals so far, both of which came in the 4-1 win away at Bury last month.
We look forward to Nile’s continued progress at the club in years to come.
You can watch Nile in action over the Christmas period with Blues at home four times in December against Oxford United (Checkatrade Trophy), Coventry City, AFC Wimbledon & Charlton Athletic.
