ANDREW Whing has left Leyton Orient to join Oxford United on a two-year deal.

The defender, who joined the O's from Brighton last October, has rejected the club's offer of a new contract and will drop down a division with the Us.

Whing predominantly played at right-back for Orient last season, making 28 appearances for the club, including 23 after his loan move from Brighton was made permanent.

His goal during the 4-1 win over Bristol Rovers was voted the club's goal of the season.
