Moses Odubajo has opted to sign a two-year contract extension with Leyton Orient.

Leyton Orient have moved quickly to secure the service of right back Moses Odubajo until June 2015.

The 19-year-old’s current deal was due to expire at the end of the this season and despite impressing several scouts who visited Brisbane Road has opted to pledge his future to the O’s.

“We’re really pleased with Moses signing,” said boss Russell Slade. “He has made great progress this season and continues to improve enormously all the time.

“There is definitely more to come from him, and there is no doubt in my mind that one day he will play at a higher level.

“It’s a signing that I’m sure will prove to be a massive asset for us not only for now but looking forwards as we continue to build a team for the future.

“There was a lot of interest in him as you can imagine as he is such a talented lad so it’s all the better that he has signed and got things sorted. We really are delighted.”
