The 22-year-old forward has signed a new two-year deal which will run until the summer of 2020

Macauley Bonne has extended his Leyton Orient contract until the end of the 2019/20 season to hand the National League outfit a big boost.

The former Colchester United forward netted 25 times in all competitions during the previous campaign and his goalscoring exploits saw him earn admirers from Football League clubs.

Bonne always remained committed to the O’s, but head coach Justin Edinburgh spoke at the end of last season about the east Londoners’ desire to extend the strikers terms and reward him for his excellent debut campaign.

Martin Ling reiterated this soon after the National League had concluded and now Orient have tied down their star forward to a contract extension.

Bonne, 22, will be contracted to the club until the summer of 2020 which should put off any teams looking to sign the attacker in January.

Last weekend he netted his first two goals of the new season in the 2-2 draw at home to Barrow and this caps a good few days for the Ipswich-born hitman.

Bonne will look to celebrate the announcement by helping Orient claim an opening victory of the campaign tomorrow (Tuesday) night at Maidstone United.
