Southend defender Harry Kyprianou has signed a new contract until 2018, with an option for a further 12 months.

The 19-year-old left-back scored on his first two Shrimpers appearances and has played four times so far for the League One side's first team.

He has been behind Ben Coker in Phil Brown's side's pecking order this term.

"It's difficult having someone like Ben Coker ahead of you, but at the same time I have learnt a lot from him and will continue to do so," he said.
