Leyton Orient left-back Charlie Daniels signs new deal

Charlie Daniels was the last of Orient's out-of-contract players to sign up again

Leyton Orient left-back Charlie Daniels has committed his future to the club by signing a new two-year contract.

Daniels, 23, follows Scott McGleish, Ryan Jarvis, Adam Chambers and Mike Cestor, who have also agreed new deals at Brisbane Road this summer.

Daniels spent a year on loan from Spurs for the 2007/08 season before signing a permanent deal with the O's under then manager Martin Ling in January 2009.

He has made 105 appearances for the club, scoring four goals.

The Harlow-born full back told the club's website: "It's unfortunate that I couldn't sign earlier as there was never any doubt in my mind that I'd stay here.

"I'd been away and the chief executive had been away, but it's all sorted now.

"I'd heard people saying that I'd been a prima donna and things like that but there's nothing in that at all.

"It's an important time for me in my career. The first time I signed here I'd just come away from Spurs and needed to play games. I felt I had done well last season and now I want to build on that and keep progressing.

"We were disappointed with finishing 17th last year and everyone from the gaffer to all the players is working hard to make sure we come in the top 10 this season. "

O's manager Russell Slade was delighted to have secured the signature of the last of his out-of-contract players.

"He's young, athletic and is a player that enjoys bombing forward for us," said Slade.

"Furthermore, what people don't see is that he's an extremely good professional off the field."
