The 22-year-old has agreed a contract until the summer of 2020, but has returned to Rocks on loan for the rest of the campaign

Leyton Orient have signed East Thurrock United defender Marvin Ekpiteta on a two-and-a-half year deal.

The versatile ace has, however, rejoined his old National League South club on loan for the rest of the season.

Ekpiteta has clearly caught the eye of O’s scouts while playing alongside Orient centre back Michael Clark, who is currently on loan at the Rocks.

He has made over a 100 appearances in the National League South and at a young age, so this move represents a look to the future from the Brisbane Road club.
