However, the 26-year-old's loan spell runs out this week and, although he has yet to discover his next destination, he admits he would be open to returning to Roots Hall.
"You can never say never but I really don't know what's going to happen," he told the Echo. "I still talk to a lot of people at the club and I love the boys there.
"I made so many friends during my time at Southend and not just on the playing side. There were loads of people who helped me through some difficult times during the first half of my contract and I would like to go back.
"But I really still don't understand what happened with me having to go out on loan and I don't know where I stand."
