O’s snap up midfielder Cisse

LEYTON ORIENT have confirmed the permanent signing of midfielder, Ouss Cisse, following a successful loan spell during the last campaign.

The 29-year-old made ten appearances for the East Londoners during the last campaign after arriving from Gillingham.

The 29-year-old established himself as a firm favourite at the Breyer Group Stadium with a series of impressive performances for Ross Embleton’s side.

Speaking to www.leytonorient.com after completing the deal, Cisse enthused: “I’m delighted to be back. I came here in January and had a really good time, so when I had the opportunity to come back I said yes straight away,” said Cissè.

“The confidence from the club and the Head Coach is really important to me, and that everyone here liked me.”

“From my first game at home the fans loved me, and I loved them as well. I’ve received many messages on my Insta and Twitter, but I couldn’t say anything as I wanted to keep it a surprise.”

“I hope they’ll be buzzing, but none so more than me, because I’m so delighted to be here.”

Meanwhile, Orient has also announced that former Wycombe Wanderers stalwart, Danny Senda has joined the club as assistant Head Coach: “I’m incredibly excited, and since I took that first phone call it was something I didn’t need to think about, I wanted to be a part of it.”

“I’m a player’s coach really. I like to create relationships as quickly as I can and help as many individuals as I can, and ultimately be there to support them – as coaches, we’re here to help them.”

“The role is all about supporting Ross, who has done a brilliant job up to this point – I think it gives him more opportunity to step back and have an overview, knowing he’s got someone that can take the day to day stuff.”
