Sky Sports understands that a host of clubs were trying to sign Thompson, and Shrimpers boss Phil Brown admitted two rivals had looked to scupper their attempts.
But now Thompson has agreed a deal with the League Two club and will sign an 18-month deal at Roots Hall.
The Northern Ireland Under-21 international captain has just completed a six-month loan deal with Southend, and they worked hard to keep him at the club.
