Paul Furlong has left Luton as a free agent and joined League One side Southend.
The veteran striker has agreed a one-year contract at Roots Hall and will join fellow new-boys Osei Sankofa and Steve Mildenhall in Steve Tilson's squad next season.
Furlong scored 12 goals for the Hatters during the 2007/08 campaign but was unable to prevent the financially threatened club from slipping into League Two.
He has made over 500 appearances during a 17-year professional career, scoring over 150 goals.
Furlong has played top flight football with Coventry and Chelsea, while also representing Watford, Queens Park Rangers, Sheffield United and Birmingham during his much-travelled career.
At 39-years-old many would have expected the striker to be ready to hang up his boots, but he is clearly not ready to call it a day just yet, as he prepares to help the Shrimpers push for promotion to the Championship next term.
