Leyton Orient boss Liverani keen to keep hold of influential midfielder.

Leyton Orient boss Fabio Liverani insists it would take a ‘crazy’ offer for the O’s to part with midfielder Dean Cox in the upcoming January transfer window.

The 27-year-old scored his 50th goal for the club in the 3-0 win at Yeovil Town tonight as Orient moved up to 19th in the League One table, which followed swiftly in the footsteps of his 49th in the 4-1 Boxing Day success over Crawley Town.

And despite Cox hinting after the 2-0 loss at Barnsley on December 20 that ‘maybe my time is up’ at the club, Liverani insists the player who only signed a new three-year deal in the summer is likely to remain at the club unless a big offer comes in for the former Brighton & Hove Albion man.

On top of that, the O’s Italian boss will attend a meeting with chairman Francesco Becchetti tomorrow to discuss their plans for the upcoming transfer window.

“Cox is a very important player for us,” said Liverani via a translator.

“We want to retain him and we are not planning to let anyone go in January. We will meet the chairman tomorrow to discuss strategies for the January transfer window.

“But Cox is a Leyton Orient player and unless someone offers crazy money for him we won’t let him go.”
