Orient run the rule over Forest defender

Byrne is training with the O’s

Young defender Neill Byrne is training with Orient after being released by Nottingham Forest.

The 18-year-old is captain of the Irish under-19 side and O’s boss Russell Slade confirmed: “He is training with us at the minute and we will be having a look at him over the next week or so.”

The youngster is expected to play in a behind-closed-doors friendly next week.
