Leyton Orient head coach Ross Embleton is expecting more movement in the January transfer window as we head into the final week. 

The O’s have moved to bring in Dan Kemp and Nick Freeman so far while they’ve seen Josh Wright depart for Crawley Town while Jordan Maguire-Drew and Myles Judd have both left on loan. 

They’re edging very close to bringing in at least one more new face while fringe players could still depart Brisbane Road. 

“I would expect so, we’ve done some work over the last couple of days, where we have spoken to people and feel we have put the plans in place,” Embleton said. 

“Now it’s a case of trying to get those over the line, certainly one and we’ll see what else develops throughout the next week.

He added: “We’ve added attackers and midfield players, so we’ll probably be looking more at the defensive area.
