Southend United defender Simon Francis has no desire to leave the club despite their relegation to League Two.

The Blues complete their season at Southampton on Saturday but will be playing next season back in the bottom league of English Football.

"I've still got another year on my contract so I'm a Southend player," Francis told BBC Essex.

"It's going to be a long summer for a lot of players to find out what's going to be happening next season."

An unnamed Championship club put in an offer for Francis in the January transfer window but a deal failed to be agreed.
