Britt Assombalonga: Staying at Southend

The 20-year-old has scored 12 goals in 25 starts since joining the Shrimpers, who are currently in the play-off places in League Two.

"We would like to thank everyone at Watford for allowing him to stay with us.

"With us looking to get promoted it's important we can keep players like Britt who can win us matches, so we're thrilled he'll be here until May."
