Leyton Orient have their eye on a “couple of players” according to interim head coach Ross Embleton.

Josh Wright, Conor Wilkinson and Lee Angol have all arrived at the club so far this summer following six departures from last season’s playing squad.

Along with players from the youth team that have gained minutes in pre-season so far, it gives the O’s a squad size of 26, but Embleton would ideally like more to give them some different dimensions to their play.

When asked if they were looking a bringing in new players, he told the club website: “We’d like to think so. We’ve had our eye on a couple of players over the summer and I suppose it’s quite strange really going from being Leyton Orient in the National League when you got your business done quite quickly and recruited exactly how we wanted to and now we go back into the Football League and we’re bottom of the pile again.

“We’ll have to wait for that chain of events for players to move and other clubs to do their recruitment before we get the opportunity to bring in the ones that we want.

“I think like we were this time last year, it’s important to bring in the right characters and the sooner we can get that done the better for everyone.”

He continued: “I think when you look at today and you look at the midfield, Jobs [Jobi McAnuff] has been missing, Gormo [Dale Gorman] picked up a quad injury, then all of a sudden we’re quite light on our feet.

“The striking position as well; you always want to be able to change that up and look see what other alternatives you’re going to have in that area of the pitch. We’re open minded as ever, we’ve got our targets, we’ve got the people we want to have our eye on and it’s just a matter of time as to how long it’s going to take and then obviously if we get the ones that we require.”
