Southend United captain Anton Ferdinand has agreed a new two-year contract with the League One club.
The experienced centre-back made 36 appearances for the Shrimpers last season after joining on a free transfer.
His form helped Phil Brown's side to a seventh-place finish and Ferdinand is hoping for even better in 2017/18.
I had a fantastic time here last season. As I’ve said before, when the gaffer asked me to sign over a year ago, it was because of him that I joined Southend.
