The midfielder, 26, has been in fine form since joining the Shrimpers temporarily from Leyton Orient last month.

And he is keen to remain at Roots Hall beyond the beginning of January when his current deal expires.

He told the Southend Echo: "I'm really enjoying it here and I've settled in well so I would definitely be interested in staying for longer.

"There's a good group of lads here and things have been going well but there's still a month to go on the loan so it's still quite early.My main focus is therefore on helping the team get good results so we can continue to move up the table like we have been in the last few weeks."

Laird's arrival has coincided with a seven-match unbeaten run for Southend, which has seen them to fourth in League Two.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
