James Olayinka has extended his loan with Southend United until the end of the 2020/21 season.

Olayinka has featured 16 times for Blues this season and scored three exceptional goals.

His first was a brilliant solo effort against Boreham Wood in the Emirates FA Cup, the second was the winning goal in a 1-0 win against Scunthorpe United and a week later Olayinka found the top corner away to Mansfield Town with an exquisite finish.

The 20-year-old suffered ankle ligament damage against Grimsby Town which he is currently recovering from and making good progress with.

We look forward to welcoming James back to Roots Hall to continue his development when he returns to full fitness.
