Sky Bet League One outfit Leyton Orient have confirmed their retained list following the conclusion of the 2023/24 season.

A number of players remain under contract, including Jayden Sweeney, Dan Agyei, Jordan Brown, Joe Pigott, Brandon Cooper, Sam Howes, George Moncur, Omar Beckles, Ollie O’Neill, Ethan Galbraith, Max Sanders, Jordan Graham, Rhys Byrne, Zech Obiero and Charlie Pegrum.

Meanwhile, the club will discuss new terms with Tom James, Jack Simpson, Dan Happe, Ruel Sotiriou, Theo Archibald, Darren Pratley and Noah Phillips.

Several loan players are returning to their parent clubs, including Sol Brynn, Idris El Mizouni, Shaq Forde, Dan Adu-Adjei and Khayon Edwards.

Departing E10 are Rob Hunt, Adam Thompson, Harrison Sodje, Emmanuel Harvest, Jephte Tanga and Ethan Light following the end of their contracts.

Speaking to www.leytonorient.com, boss, Richie Wellens, said: “Making these decisions is never easy and, for me, it was very important that we met all of the players individually and gave them their respective news in person.

“For those that we’ll be saying goodbye to, I wanted to speak to them face to face, shake their hands and thank them for giving everything to Leyton Orient.

“Hunty and Thommo are two fantastic, experienced professionals who I have no doubt will make great additions to other clubs this summer and beyond. For the younger lads that will move on, although they may see this as a setback it is also an opportunity for them to start afresh and we wish them all the best in their future careers too.”
