Defender Ben Chorley has moved from Leyton Orient to League One rivals Stevenage with immediate effect, meanwhile striker Michael Symes has joined Burton Albion on loan.

Symes has found chances hard to come by at the O’s this season and has moved to the League Two club until the end of the campaign.

The departure of Chorley is something of a surprise though, with the central defender having worn the captain’s armband recently.

The 30-year-old had made 159 appearances for the O’s but has signed a two and a half year contract with Boro.

Orient manager Russell Slade explained: “Ben has been a great servant to the football club and we thank him for all his efforts in an Orient shirt.

“He’s at an age where he has to consider longevity and we were not in a position to offer him what Stevenage have. The entire process was handled very professionally and amicably and we wish him all the best.”
