Clarke still playing waiting game

The 27-year-old was named as the club's Player of the Year on Saturday after another fine season at the heart of the Shrimpers' defence.

But recent weeks have been overshadowed by a verbal tug-of-war between the former Everton man and club chairman Ron Martin over whether or not he has been offered an extension to his deal which is about to expire.

"Now the games are out of the way I'm sure there will be some dialogue between the club and myself," Clarke told Southend's official website.

"I've never asked to leave but I don't know what the chairman has in mind so we will have to see what comes to pass."
