Leyton Orient sign Stephen Dawson and Dean Cox

Stephen Dawson was offered a new contract by Bury

Leyton Orient have agreed deals for Bury captain Stephen Dawson and Dean Cox, who was released by Brighton at the end of the season.

Twenty-four-year-old midfielder Dawson was offered new terms by the Shakers but will sign for Orient when his contract expires in July.

Winger Cox, 22, played 179 times for Brighton and was a regular until Gus Poyet became Seagulls boss last season.

Irishman Dawson and Englishman Cox have signed two-year deals with the O's.

Dawson, whose former clubs include Leicester City and Mansfield Town, told the Orient website: "It was a tough decision to leave Bury. I've got a lot of time for [manager] Alan Knill and a lot of good friends there.

"But it's a dream come true to make the step up to League One."
