SOUTHEND United defender John White is set to sign a one year deal to stay with the Shrimpers, Echosport understands.

The 30-year-old has been with Blues since 2013, making 151 appearances.

And the right-back is now expected to extend his spell at the club, with the contract - which includes clauses to trigger a further year - due to be signed in the next few days.

White played 17 times last season.
