Following his impressive earlier trial in effect, Liverpool youngster Jakub Sokolik has now joined Southend United on loan.

The 20 year old has joined us today and is in line to potentially make his debut for the club in tonight’s match against Scunthorpe United.

He has joined us now until the end of the current season and manager Phil Brown said to the Official Site.

‘I was very impressed with Jakub in the game against Colchester and in training last week. He’ll play a big part between now and the end of the season.’

With the defensive problems we have had, he’ll be a good option and some cover for us as we move forward and Brown believes he’s good enough to have an impact on the side whenever he’s called upon.

He has been handed the No 35 shirt for the remainder of the campaign, and this will be his first spell out on loan I believe.
