Out of contract midfielder agrees move to Scotland

Former Leyton Orient midfielder Marvin Bartley agreed a move to Scottish outfit Hibernian at the weekend and left a classy message for O’s fans after his departure.

The 29-year-old has signed a two-year deal with the Scottish Championship team following the expiration of his contract with the Brisbane Road club.

He was one of 12 players not offered a new contract after relegation to League Two and following confirmation of his move to the north of the boarder, Bartley paid tribute to everyone associated with the east London side.

“I would like to thank everyone associated with Leyton Orient; collectively, you have made me feel incredibly welcome during my time at the club,” the Hibs midfielder tweeted.

“I would also like to express my sincere gratitude to all those who have sent me good luck wishes now that the time has come for me to depart.

“I would have loved for the club to have remained in League One, but I hope that you come back bigger and better and wish you the best of luck in your quest for promotion this season.”

Bartley made 57 appearances for the Brisbane Road outfit during his time with the club after signing in January 2014 following his contract at Burnley being terminated by mutual consent.

A statement on the Orient website read: “The club would like to thank Marvin for his efforts during his time with the O’s and wish him all the best for the future.”
