ON LOAN Arsenal midfielder James Olayinka is set to return to Southend United next week.

The 20-year-old has not featured since injuring his ankle against Grimsby Town last month.

But Blues boss Mark Molesley expects Olayinka to soon be back at Roots Hall 

"James is due back here at the end of next week which is positive news," said Molesley.

"He might be able to train next Friday but it will probably be too soon for the game the next day.

"He will slowly be integrated but it’s exciting to know he's are on the cusp of coming back."

Olayinka has scored three goals in 16 games for Blues this season.
