MARC Antoine Fortune has completed a switch to Southend United, Echosport understands.

The 35-year-old striker - who had been on trial with Blues - has signed an initial four month contract which includes clauses that could extend the deal.

The Frenchman, who previously played for Celtic and West Bromwich Albion, will be in contention to make his Shrimpers debut against Peterborough United this weekend.
