French ace moves to east London but unable to play until start of 2017 at least because of achilles problem

Leyton Orient have announced the signing of French defender Teddy Mezague on a three-year deal.

The cental defender began his career with Montpellier, progressing through their youth academy before moving to Mouscron-Peruwelz.

Mouscron were playing in the Jupiler Pro League last season and finished 14th in the standings.

Mezague is the second player from the Belgium First Division to move to O’s in the summer transfer window.

Yvan Erichot made the switch from Sint-Truiden in July and has been a regular under Andy Hessenthaler, although struggled so far.

Orient were in desperate need of more cover at the back, but this transfer is subject to international clearance.

Another problem O’s have is that Mezague isn’t set to feature for his new club until 2017 because of an achilles problem.

It is far from idea for Hessenthaler and his coaching staff and they also received bad news this morning when it was revealed Luke Gambin has turned down a move to Brisbane Road.

Barnet accepted an offer in excess of £100,000 for the midfielder on Saturday evening and confirmed the news in a statement.

This morning they revealed the 23-year-old has rejected a switch to east London because he wants to play higher than League Two.
