The players that will leave Leyton Orient on a free this summer unless contracts are renewed



Leyton Orient has made some very positive strides since appointing Richie Wellens as Kenny Jackett’s replacement in the dugout at Brisbane Road.

The O’s have been devastating in flashes this season, showing the potential that they could push themselves into the promotion conversation next season.

Wellens won League Two with Swindon Town, playing a very aesthetically pleasing brand of football, in 2019/20 and with significant backing on and off the pitch, he looks on track to deliver something similar at Orient in the coming seasons.

Player recruitment will be of paramount importance once again this summer, allowing Wellens to mold a squad in his own image heading into 2022/23.

Here, we have taken a look at all of the senior players at Orient who are out of contract in the summer, as per Transfermarkt

The 12 players are as follows: Darren Pratley, Adam Thompson, Callum Reilly, Tom James, Sam Sargeant, Ruel Sotiriou, Hector Kyprianou, Jayden Sweeney, Matt Young, Rhys Byrne, Antony Papadopoulos and Daniel Nkrumah.

Tom James, Darren Pratley and Ruel Sotiriou standout as three names who have been heavily involved when available this season.

Sotiriou, 21, has had something of a breakthrough season in the fourth tier and looks to be one of the most exciting youthful forwards in the division.

With his contract nearing expiry, the versatile forward will be on the radar of many other EFL clubs sniffing for a bargain in the summer.

Orient, of course, would receive a compensation payment due to him being under the age of 23, but it would be a loss for the O’s attacking contingent.

Pratley turns 37 on Friday of this week, and has continued the impressive twilight to his career after signing for Orient in the summer, after three seasons as a first team regular at Charlton Athletic.

Quiz: What club do these 25 players from the Leyton Orient 2016/17 squad play for now?

Josh Koroma?

James has struggled with some niggling injuries this term but has quality above League Two level, and at 25 he is a player that Wellens will see as pivotal to their endeavours next season.

If there were three to definitely tie down to new deals it would be that trio, depending on Pratley’s future plans at this stage of his career.

Sotiriou could certainly be a popular name on the transfer rumour mill heading into the summer.
