Southend United complete double loan swoop

League Two playoff hopefuls Southend United sign Yeovil Town defender Jakub Sokolik and West Ham striker Elliot Lee on one- and three-month loans respectively.

Southend United have completed the loan signings of Yeovil Town defender Jakub Sokolik and West Ham United striker Elliot Lee.

Czech Sokolik, 21, returns to Roots Hall for a second spell after spending two months of last season on loan at Southend from Liverpool.

He has started 11 of Yeovil's 15 League One games since arriving on a free transfer from the Reds, but has been allowed to drop down a division for a month by Glovers manager Gary Johnson.

Lee, who is the son of former Newcastle United and England midfielder Rob Lee, joins on a three-month deal after the Shrimpers sanctioned 30-year-old forward Lee Barnard's loan move to Stevenage.

The teenage striker has made two substitute appearances for the Hammers and scored once in five games during a short stint at Colchester United in 2013.
