DONE DEAL: Southend land Bournemouth defender Hobson

Southend United have signed defender Shaun Hobson from AFC Bournemouth on a one-year contract.

The 22-year-old played under Shrimpers boss Mark Molesley for Bournemouth's under-21s and then during a loan spell at Weymouth last season.

"The age I'm at, I wanted to get out and play games, and now is the right time," Hobson told the club website.

He did not play a first-team game for Bournemouth, and also had loan spells at Eastbourne, Chester and Eastleigh.

Neither Southend nor Bournemouth have disclosed whether any transfer fee was paid to secure the deal.
