Skysports.com understands Southend United are poised to sign free agent Peter Gilbert.

The 26-year-old defender is currently on the lookout for a new club after leaving Northampton.

He impressed at Sixfields last season and opted against signing new terms with The Cobblers.

Southend's new manager Paul Sturrock is a big fan of Gilbert having worked with him at Plymouth and Sheffield Wednesday.

The Shrimpers' new boss is now set to make Gilbert his first signing in charge of the Roots Hall club.
