Southend United have completed the loan signing of Northampton Town midfielder John-Joe O'Toole.

The 26-year-old only moved to Sixfields in the summer, but has so far struggled to live up to expectations.

Northampton boss Chris Wilder says that the club made the decision to allow O'Toole to leave on loan until January 24 after the former Colchester man made it clear that he felt he would benefit from time away.

“We had a meeting with John-Joe to try and find out why we haven’t been able to get the best out of him and why he hasn’t been able to produce anything near what he is capable of.

He came up with the suggestion that he might fancy a loan move and I didn’t want to stand in his way."
