Dan Happe has put pen to paper on his first professional contract, tying him to Leyton Orient until 2020.

The centre-back celebrate his 19th birthday last week and has impressed this season after being pushed into the limelight due to a number of defensive injuries.

He was among the better performers as Orient lost 2-1 against AFC Fylde on Saturday.

Happe made his O’s debut against Cambridge United in April and has gone on to make five appearances for the E10 club.

He started the season at Gateshead and is also capable of playing as a left-back.
