Southend United have completed the signing of former Rotherham United winger David Worrall.

The 24-year-old's contract with the Championship newcomers was terminated by mutual consent last week.

He's agreed a two-year contract in Essex.

Worrall made his name at Bury, where he made over 140 appearances. He spent time on loan at Oldham Athletic last season.

Shrimpers boss Phil Brown says that he's delighted to have attracted Worrall to Roots Hall.

"He’ll bring a huge amount to this football club.

We identified him early on this pre-season as a target and someone we thought would really help our promotion push next season, but we knew there was lots of interest."

Norwich City have rejected an offer from QPR for midfielder Leroy Fer, according to reports in London.

West London Sport says that Rangers have seen their initial bid rebuffed, but are likely to return with an improved offer.

Fer is still on holiday after starring for Holland at the World Cup, and Canaries boss Neil Adams has previously stated his desire to keep the 24-year-old at Carrow Road.

However, QPR manager Harry Redknapp is a known admirer of Fer and admitted his interest in the player earlier this week.

'He's a good player. You don't play in the Dutch team if you're not a good player.

If he's available I'm sure plenty of people will be interested."

Cambridge United have signed young Charlton Athletic defender Harry Lennon on a six-month loan deal.

The 19-year-old made his debut for the Addicks last season after breaking into the first team.

Cambridge Director of Football Jez George says the U's beat other clubs to Lennon's signature.

"Our Chief Scout, Ben Strang, has watched Harry on several occasions for Charlton's U21s and has always been impressed.

He has all of the physical attributes that Richard was looking for in adding another defender to the squad. Harry is 6 foot 2 inches, left footed and quick. He is also able to play left side centre back or left back which will give some flexibility to our defensive options.

We have an excellent relationship with Charlton and therefore, despite interest from other clubs in our league for Harry, we were able to secure a loan deal until January. We would like to thank Charlton for all their help."

Luton Town have signed veteran striker Paul Benson on a permanent deal.

The 34-year-old spent last season on loan at Kenilworth Road, and was released by parent club Swindon Town earlier this summer.

He's agreed a two-year contract.

Benson's Luton record

  • Scored 18 goals in 38 Conference games.
  • Finished as Luton's second top scorer, behind Andre Gray (30) who has since moved to Brentford.

Speaking to the club's official website, Benson said that he was happy to secure his future.

"It’s good to finally get the contract sorted. I’m looking forward to an exciting season for me and the club.

I think we have the players here to really push on and challenge at the right end of the table.

If we take the momentum from last season forward I really do think we have a real chance of going up again."

Meanwhile, the Hatters have also signed two young players following successful trials.

Left-back Mark Onyemah has put pen to paper on a two-year deal from Thurrock, while 24-year-old striker Charlie Walker has joined from Peacehaven & Telscombe.

Walker scored 43 goals for the non-league side last season.

Luton defender Steve McNulty has also committed his future to the club, signing a new two-year contract.

New MK Dons striker Will Grigg says he turned down other offers in favour of sealing a move to stadium:mk.

The Northern Ireland international joined Karl Robinson's side on a season-long loan deal from Brentford last week.

Grigg in the goals

  • Grigg scored four goals for Brentford last season as they gained promotion to The Championship.
  • He hit 20 goals for Walsall in 2012/13, which prompted Brentford to pay over £300,000 to land the striker.

Several other clubs were interested in landing the 23-year-old, but Grigg told the MK Dons official website that he had his heart set on a move to Buckinghamshire.

“When I was away before pre-season I heard there was a bit of interest and when it came about it was something I was really keen to do. As soon as the ball got rolling both parties were confident they could make it work and it’s just nice to be here now.

There we a few choices but the style of football here suits me, it’s a similar formation to Brentford and Walsall so it’s a good fit for me personally. I know the Gaffer’s wanted me for quite a while so it was really a no-brainer. There was other clubs but this is the perfect fit."
