Young midfielder Matthew Dennis joined Southend United on loan from Norwich City in August 2021.
In a bid to get more game time under his belt and aid his development, Dennis signed prior to the start of the season following a successful trial period in pre-season.
Matthew came through the ranks at Arsenal having joined the Gunners aged six and went on to represent Arsenal at under-18 and under-23 level.
Suited to a more attacking role either on the flank or through the middle, Dennis joined the Canaries from Arsenal in July 2020 on a free transfer.
He made 21 Premier League 2 appearances for Norwich in his first season, scoring five goals. He also featured for his parent club in the EFL Trophy in the 20/21 season, scoring two in four games.
Matthew made his Southend United debut on the opening day of the 21/22 season away to King’s Lynn Town.
