The club are delighted to announce striker Tristan Abrahams has made a deadline day return to E10, joining on loan from Newport County.

A product of the O’s academy, Abrahams scored two goals for Orient back in the 2017 before making the move to Norwich City that summer.

“I’m buzzing. I’m so happy to be back, this is my home,” expressed Abrahams.

“I know a lot of the boys here. When you move mid-season, you want to hit the ground running; coming back here I know a lot of the people, staff and the philosophy of the club. It was an easy decision to come back.”

At the Exiles, the 22-year-old scored 18 and assisted 8 in 74 appearances. The forward was also voted the club’s Young Player & Supporter’s 2019/20 Player of the Season.

Abrahams played a vital part in Newport’s Carabao Cup run earlier this campaign, scoring against Newcastle and Watford, as well as a brace against Swansea.

Head Coach Ross Embleton is delighted to welcome the forward to the club:

“He is a good lad and a player we always look out for because of his history with the club. To be able to bring someone in like him, this window, provides a real good option.”

“This signing gives us the options to play different people up front, different formations when we need to. It’s nice to have that alternative.”

The deal and Tristan’s availability for our fixture against Crawley Town is subject to international clearance. The striker will take the number 35 shirt, the same number he wore four years ago.

Tristan is available to be sponsored for the rest of the season – get in touch with [email protected] to enquire.
