Freddy Eastwood has rejoined Southend United in a two-year-deal.

The Welsh International joins the Roots Hall outfit after spells with Wolves, Coventry. He spent four seasons with the Sky Blues scoring 17 goals in 113 appearances.

Eastwood told the club website that he was delighted to rejoin the Essex side:

It was never really in doubt that I would come here. I came back at the end of the season and I am happy to be back permanently now.

Being at Southend is the most enjoyable time I have had in my career and that is what brought me back here twice.
