Two groups have registered an interest in east London club and will meet Italian owner this week
Leyton Orient chairman Francesco Becchetti is set to meet two potential buyers this week over the proposed sale of the recently relegated club.
A statement put out by O’s in January revealed the Italian was willing to listen to offers and had rejected one bid.
But despite talk of potential buyers registering an interest in Orient, no further news has emerged from the club since.
Speculation in recent weeks has suggested O’s fan Nigel Travis is close to completing a deal to buy the Brisbane Road outfit.
