Tamika Mkandawire, centre, has joined Southend as he attempts to regain fitness

Southend have signed Millwall midfielder Tamika Mkandawire on loan until January 8, 2013.

Mkandawire, who can also play in defence, has been out for a year with a knee injury.

Following several reserve-team appearances for the Lions, the London club's 2010/11 player of the year has been allowed out on loan to continue his recovery and regain his match fitness.

The 29-year-old trained with the Southend squad on Friday but is not allowed to play in their FA Cup first-round tie against Stockport.

However, he will be able to feature for the Shrimpers in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
