We’re closing in on the end of the week, but the transfer action is heating up in League Two.
We’ve seen players coming and going all day, with Exeter City right at the forefront of the moves. They bagged Nicky Ajose yesterday, but they’ve confirmed a departure today which is where we begin our daily round-up.
Exeter City have confirmed that defender Troy Brown has left the club.
The 28-year-old has suffered a torrid time with injuries, restricting his appearance for the Grecians. Manager Matt Taylor told Devon Live that’s the motivation behind letting him go.
“Troy has been a really good player for this club, but we have not seen enough of him in the last two years on the pitch.
“I have said that was the reason why we didn’t offer him a contract straight away and I am sure Troy will go on and have a good career elsewhere but, unfortunately, his time at Exeter will be at an end.”
Cheltenham Town have landed themselves an international defender, with 21-year-old Dan Bowry joining the Robins.
He was released by Charlton at the end of last season having failed to make a single appearance for the Addicks. He’s an Antiguan international, making two appearances for his country.
He signs a one-year deal at Whaddon Road.
Leyton Orient could be set to lose another star player to a Championship side as the Daily Mail link Dan Happe with a move to Leeds United.
Norwich City have also been mentioned as a possible destination for Happe, the 20-year-old product of Orient’s academy.
They’ve already lost Josh Koroma and Macaulay Bonne this summer.
Colchester United’s former striker Mikael Mandron has linked up with the U’s for pre-season training as he continues to hunt a new club, but only as a way of keeping himself fit.
Gazette News reports that the powerful striker is back training with John McGreal’s side, although he’s been linked with Hearts, Bristol Rovers and Northampton Town.
“We’re a club that tries to look after its own and we were only too glad to help,” said McGreal.
