Southend United sign Miguel Comminges from Cardiff City

Miguel Comminges

Miguel Comminges; another Luggy player from his Swindon days

The Guadeloupian*, say that after a few beers, has signed for the Shrimpers on a free transfer after being released by Championship Cardiff City.

Comminges, 28, can play at full-back, left or right, and slot into midfield as well, a possible replacement for Josh Simpson there, and hopefully not Anthony Grant!

He knows Blues boss Paul Sturrock from Luggy's time as manager of Swindon Town, and presumably the present day Shrimpers from his time there, Captain Craig Easton included, and after opting to quit the Wiltshire Robins went on to play 31 times for Cardiff.

Miguel was loaned out to Carlisle the end of November, making only one appearance as the weather took it's toll on the League fixture list.

Southend will hope he can make his debut against Cheltenham Town on Bank Holiday Monday but are awaiting clearance from the Welsh FA.

He has been given the squad number 19.

Welcome to the club Miguel and good luck.
