Leyton Orient Football Club are delighted to confirm that George Marsh has extended his loan deal until the end of the season.

The midfielder joined the O’s in early August from parent club Tottenham Hotspur, originally agreeing a loan deal until January and has since made 18 appearances for Orient.

Marsh made his debut against Southend United in the Trophy, a game Orient won 2-0 at the Breyer Group Stadium. The number 21 would then go on to feature against Exeter, recording the first Football League appearance of his career, as the game finished 2-2.

Ross Embleton on the extension:

“I’m absolutely delighted that he has signed for the rest of the season. It’s fantastic for us as a Club and for George and his development.

He came out here on his first loan and has played a lot of football; it was a slow start, but I think he has really shown everyone here what he is about as a character, what he is about athletically and the quality he has got as a footballer.

We’re delighted to have him. From our perspective he is a good player that we can have again for the second half of the season.”
