Ex-Queens Park Rangers centre back agrees one-year deal at Brisbane Road

Leyton Orient have signed centre back Jamie Sendles-White following a successful trial period at Brisbane Road.

The former Swindon Town defender has been at O’s since the start of pre-season after leaving the Robins in the summer.

Sendles-White has featured for Orient as a trialist in games at Greenwich Borough and Hornchurch and done enough to earn a contract at the club.

The Queens Park Rangers academy graduate progressed through the youth-system at Loftus Road, but failed to make an appearance for the R’s.

Loan spells at Colchester United and Mansfield Town followed with Sendles-White making his professional debut at the Stags.

The centre back left QPR in the summer of 2015 and signed for Scottish Premiership club Hamilton Academical soon after.

Sendles-White departed the Accies in January, however, and linked up with Swindon Town in February 2016.

It would prove to be a wise decision with the Northern Ireland under-21 international flourishing at the County Ground.

He made 10 appearances for the Robins during the second-half of the 2015/16 season and earned a contract extension as a result.

After a solid start to the next campaign, Sendles-White suffered anterior cruciate ligament damage in September ahead of a potential call-up to the senior Northern Ireland national team.

It was terrible timing for the defender and despite working hard to recover, he was let go by Swindon at the end of the season.

But the Robins loss appears to be Orient’s gain with O’s assistant Ross Embleton likely to have played a part in this transfer.

Embleton worked with Sendles-White last season and the defender has managed to impress Martin Ling and Steve Davis enough to now earn a one-year deal.

He is likely to be third-choice initially at Brisbane Road, but will look to force his way into the starting XI when 100 per cent fit.
