Former Ipswich Town midfielder Luke Hyam has been released by Southend following two injury-disrupted seasons at Roots Hall.
The former Northgate High School pupil, who still lives in Ipswich, joined the Shrimpers in the summer of 2018 following his release from Portman Road on an initial two-year deal.
He made 22 appearances for the Essex club in his first season, scoring once, before appearing just six times in his second.
His last game was in November, with hamstring problems troubling him throughout his time at the club.
He will become a free agent when his Southend contract expires at the end of June.
