Leyton Orient defender Mathieu Baudry has attracted a lot of interest from some Championship clubs, according to Sky Sports.
They report that Bournemouth, Brentford and Charlton Athletic are all looking into the availability of the defender, and that the Frenchman has a £200,000 release clause from his Orient contract which runs out in 2016.
Baudry, who was ironically released by Bournemouth in 2012, has made 63 league appearances for Orient since his arrival, scoring five goals.
The 26-year-old had a brief loan spell at Dagenham & Redbridge in 2012, but since then has been a valuable member of Russell Slade’s League One side. Baudry previously made 10 appearances with former club Bournemouth.
The centre-back may well be playing in the Championship sooner rather than later anyway, with Orient’s new Italian owner, Francesco Becchetti, ready to invest in the London club and promising via TalkSPORT to back manager Russell Slade in the transfer market.
