NEWS: Orient sign Brighton & Hove Albion defender on loan

2 October 2015

Former O's loanee makes E10 return

The O's have added left back Adam Chicksen to their squad on an initial one-month loan deal from Championship side Brighton & Hove Albion.

The 24-year-old links up with Orient for the second time in his career, having had a three-game loan spell with the Club back in 2012.

Chicksen will wear the number 20 shirt during his loan spell with the O's and is available for selection in tomorrow's home game with Notts County.

"We are delighted to bring someone of Adam's quality to the Club," O's Head Coach Ian Hendon told leytonorient.com.

"He has played a large number of games in League One, and despite only being 24, has plenty of experience under his belt. Some of you may remember him from his previous loan with the Club, and I am looking forward to working with Adam.

"We are still looking to strengthen the squad further though, and we continue to cast our eye over several potential options."

The defender is yet to feature for the Seagulls this season in the Championship, and had loan spells last term with both Fleetwood Town and Gillingham.

Left-back Chicksen came through the youth ranks at MK Dons, and played 93 games for the Stadiummk side before moving to Brighton on a free transfer in 2012.

Watch out later on today for a video interview with the new O's loan signing.
