“quality” and “experience”: Leyton Orient boss Wellens shares an amazing transfer update ahead of January…

Leyton Orient manager Richie Wellens has outlined his intentions to strengthen the squad during the upcoming January transfer window, emphasizing the need for additional “quality” and “experience” to enhance the team’s performance in the League One season’s second half.

Currently positioned in 16th place in the League One table after their promotion from League Two last season, Leyton Orient faces the challenge of securing points to stay above the relegation zone. With 22 points from 19 games, Wellens recognizes the necessity of reinforcing the squad.

Wellens provided insight into the team’s current challenges, mentioning the strain on player Dan Agyei, who may not be fully ready, and the impact of injuries, particularly the absence of Jordan Graham. Expressing the need for improvement, Wellens emphasized the importance of acquiring quality and experience in the upcoming transfer window to address the squad’s deficiencies.

The manager expressed a desire for the team to reflect the strategies and practices implemented during training, highlighting the disparity between what is practiced and what is executed on the field. Acknowledging the anticipated difficulties of the season, Wellens pointed out that the team’s average age in a recent game was only 22, indicating a relatively young squad.

Having successfully navigated the step up a division, Leyton Orient’s primary goal this season is survival in League One. Despite their ambitions, the team acknowledges the importance of bolstering the squad, especially in areas affected by injuries, to secure more points in the league.

Leyton Orient made strategic signings over the summer, bringing in players like Ethan Galbraith, Jordan Graham, Dan Agyei, and Max Sanders to prepare for the challenges of League One. Despite these preparations, the team has faced unfortunate injuries, making the January transfer window an opportune time to address squad depth.

Wellens, who has been adept at recruitment since joining Leyton Orient, is expected to leverage his connections in the Football League to bring in new faces during the upcoming transfer window.

The team recently suffered a 1-0 defeat to Chesterfield in the FA Cup, but they aim to bounce back with a positive result against Derby County this weekend, seeking to break a six-game winless streak in all competitions. The late equalizer in their last league outing against Bristol Rovers provides a source of confidence for the team.
