Former Barnsley defender exits Brisbane Road after his two-month contract ends

Leyton Orient have confirmed defender Jean-Yves M’voto has left the club after his short-term contract expired.

The 27-year-old signed a two-month deal on November 21 and played a starring role in the 3-2 win against York City.

His good form continued throughout the month as he helped the east Londoners earn 1-1 draws with Plymouth Argyle and AFC Wimbledon.

The former Barnsley man was fast becoming a fans favourite at this point, but has been on a downward spiral since the FA Cup defeat at Scunthorpe United.

He was substituted at Bristol Rovers on December 28 before missing the Stevenage match with a groin problem.

Although he returned against Exeter City last weekend, he delivered a poor display and again was hauled off at half time.

Ian Hendon hinted after the match that the French ace was unlikely to sign a contract extension and that has proved to be the case.

A statement on the official club website read: “The Frenchman went on to play a total of 10 matches during his time in E10.

“The club would like to thank Jean-Yves for his contribution and wish him well for the future.”
