Leyton Orient has confirmed the departure of strikers, Danny Johnson and Conor Wilkinson along with defender James Brophy.

All three players were offered new deals to remain at the Breyer Group Stadium. However, they are now set to start next season elsewhere after rejection terms.

Johnson – who netted 22 goals in 54 appearances for Orient – has moved to Sky Bet League Two rivals, Mansfield Town. Meanwhile, Wilkinson – who chipped in with fifteen last season – has joined Walsall.
