The 30-year-old is out of contract with the O’s and is expected to leave Brisbane Road this summer after four years at the club.

Orient were relegated from League One last season and the striker is also attracting interest from Southend’s rivals Colchester United.

Mooney has been an integral part of the Orient side since joining in 2011 and scored 21 times during the 2013/14 season that took the club to the League One play-off final, where they lost to Rotherham United.

But last season was one to forget on and off the pitch for the London club and the striker scored just eight goals in 38 appearances.

Mooney began his career in Ireland and had spells with Shamrock Rovers, Longford Town and Cork City before moving to England to join Reading in 2008.

The Irishman failed to make the breakthrough at the Madejski Stadium and had loan spells at Stockport, Norwich, Charlton and Colchester before joining Orient.

What do you make to the news Orient fans? Would it be a shame to lose Mooney this summer? Let us know in the comments section below!
