The O’s only have two matches left this season against Maidenhead United and Gateshead this week and with the club guaranteed to be in the division they’ve started planning their summer recruitment.

Most importantly the club will be keen to keep hold of Macauley Bonne, who has scored 24 goals in all competitions, but the striker is being linked with plenty of League Two outfits after impressing for the Brisbane Road-based outfit.

“No news, he’s our player,” Edinburgh said.

“I stand here now and we’ve had no contact, we don’t invite anything either.

“I believe Macca will be a part of what we’re trying to achieve here next season and that’s pushing at the right end of the table.”

Edinburgh also revealed the club has a number of players on their radar including loanees Dan Holman and Ebou Adams.

“Dan has got a slight break in one of his metatarsal so that’s the reason he has been missing but Dan is on our radar.

“I think we have been able to give ourselves an opportunity from when we knew we were safe to start getting our recruitment in place for next year and it’s started already.

“I think we need to bring two strikers to the club and that’s what we’re going to try doing.”

The O’s have also opened negotiations with Norwich City midfielder Ebou Adams who is currently on loan at the club.

“We’re in dialogue with Ebou’s representatives,” he said.

“I take him as genuine and he just wants to continue to play well for Leyton Orient and I think the decision will be positive come the end of the season.”
