The O’s have added central defender Jean-Yves M’voto to their squad on an initial two-month deal.

The 27-year-old Frenchman has been without a club since leaving Barnsley in the summer and is available to come straight into the side for today’s game with York City.

‘He has played a lot of games in England and has played at all levels, he hasn’t had a club since the summer so can come straight in with no transfer complications ,” Head Coach Ian Hendon told

“Jean has been training with us for most of the week and has fitted in really well. We are looking forward to seeing him in action.”

M’voto started his career with Paris St Germain, before linking up with Sunderland in 2008.

During his time with the Black Cats he spent spells on loan with both Southend United and Oldham Athletic, before making a permanent switch to Boundary Park in 2011.

After two years with the Latics, he linked up with Barnsley and went on to make 56 league appearances at Oakwell during a two-year stay which ended in the summer.

And now M’voto had opted to link up with the O’s and will wear the number 15 shirt during his time in E10.

“I’m delighted to be joining Leyton Orient,” M’voto told “It is a good club with some good players and I am glad to be here.

“I hope to have a positive impact on the group as well add some more quality and experience to the team. I am here to compete and am ready to kick on and help the Club.”
