McLaughlin joins Southend

28 August 2015

Stephen McLaughlin has left Nottingham Forest to join Southend United for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old has returned to the club he helped win promotion to League One via the play-offs while on loan last season.

McLaughlin spent two-and-a-half years at The City Ground after arriving from Derry City but he found first-team opportunities hard to come by on Trentside.

He made only 15 appearances for The Reds and sought experience with loan spells at Bristol City and Notts County.

McLaughlin spent the latter part of the 2014-15 campaign with Southend and today completed the formalities of a permanent move to Roots Hall.
