Zavon Hines only played in six league games for Dagenham last season because of injury

League One side Southend United have signed winger Zavon Hines on a contract until the end of the season.

The 27-year-old ex-West Ham and Bradford player has not made a first-team appearance since featuring for Dagenham & Redbridge in September 2015.

Since then Hines has had surgery twice on the same knee, but has recently been on trial with Phil Brown's Shrimpers.

Hines, released by the Daggers in May, comes in following injuries to Southend forwards Nile Ranger and Simon Cox.

Both came off with knocks in Saturday's 2-0 win at Oldham.
