Leyton Orient Football Club are delighted to announce the loan signing of versatile defender Dan Moss.

Moss joins the O’s from Millwall, signing a loan deal until the end of the 2021/22 season.

21 year old Moss, was brought through the academy at Burnley, before leaving Turf Moor in the summer of 2019 to link up with Millwall’s elite development squad following the end of his scholarship with the Clarets.

Moss is a highly versatile player, whilst primarily a right back, he can also operate at both centre-back and centre midfield.

The first half of the 2021/22 season saw Moss sent on loan to Huish Park, wearing the shirt of Vanarama National League side, Yeovil Town.

Moss made 20 league appearances for the Glovers, as well as helping the side to the third round of the FA Cup, where the Somerset side fell to a 3-1 defeat to Championship side AFC Bournemouth.

‘I’m buzzing to be here and I can’t wait to get started, and especially to play in front of the fans here.’

“I’m buzzing to be here at Leyton Orient,” said Moss. “It’s all come about pretty quickly from when I was playing against Southend for Yeovil, but I am really excited to get going.”

‘The football that I played at Yeovil was different to u23’s football. But with the amount of preparation I had done, I felt that I was ready to have made that step into senior football in the National League.’

‘I spoke with Alex Mitchell a few times before I’d signed for the club and he had nothing but good things to say, so it was a no brainer for me to sign here in the end.’

‘Personally, I want to establish myself to be a first team player here. I want to start as many games as possible and help the team however I can. As a team, the aim is clear. We want to be in the play off places and push for promotion into League One.’

Dan will wear the number 17 shirt for the O’s, and the first chance to see him in action will be versus Port Vale on the 22nd January.
