Striker Kevin Lisbie has signed a one-year contract extension at Leyton Orient.

The 34-year-old’s current deal was due to expire in the summer, but the veteran forward has now put pen to paper to extend his stay.

Orient boss Russell Slade said: “Kevin is a huge player for us and to get his commitment moving forwards is massive. “He’s a class act and an excellent pro who offers us valuable experience and quality both on and off the pitch.

“He’s excellent with the younger players and they can learn a lot from him.

“He attracted some interest in the transfer window so for him to see his future with us gives an indication of what we are building here and it’s great for the club.”
