Southend United announced the return of Sam Hart to Roots Hall on a permanent deal in November 2020.
The left-back, who spent the second half of the 2018/19 season on loan at Blues making 18 appearances, signed a deal until the end of the 20/21 season.
The 24-year-old grabbed three assists and formed a strong bond with the Blues supporters for his committed displays during his previous spell.
A former Liverpool trainee, Hart made the switch to Blackburn Rovers in August 2017.
Loans to Port Vale, Rochdale twice and Shrewsbury as well as Blues have given Hart good experience of first team football, and after becoming a free agent in the summer following his release from Rovers, when the opportunity to rejoin Southend came about he jumped at the chance.
