Turns returns to O’s

Leyton Orient have re-signed highly rated defender Ed Turns on a season-long loan from Premier League Brighton & Hove Albion.

The 20-year-old enjoyed a sixteen-match spell with the O’s during the second half of last season, helping the East Londoners to the Sky Bet League Two title.

Speaking about his return to Brisbane Road, Turns told www.leytonorient.com: “I’m buzzing to be back here. I had a great half of a season here last season so I’m delighted.

“There were plenty of reasons why I wanted to come back, the manager, the coaching staff, the players, the fans, Brisbane Road, the lot really.

“It’s going to be a tougher season in League One, but it is one we are really looking forward to, and we want to carry on the good work that we left off.”
