Gavin Massey and Liam Kelly are among several players set to leave Leyton Orient this summer following relegation to the National League.

The pair were two of O’s best performers in League Two, but will depart Brisbane Road on a free transfer despite signing three-year deals in 2016.

Massey and Kelly, along with Tom Parkes and Jordan Bowery, have exercised an option in their contract to leave Orient after relegation.

A number of other players will move on with their current deals expiring this summer and they include Alex Cisak, Nicky Hunt and Paul McCallum.
