Leyton Orient have appointed Andrea Pressenda as their new technical director.

The League Two club's football adviser Gianluca Romano left at the end of last year and the O's have moved to replace him.

Pressenda has worked as a sports journalist for Sky Italia and Francesco Becchetti's Agon channel. 

The Italian will play a significant role in the club's transfer activity with the O's hoping to make a number of signings before the end of the month.
