Justin Edinburgh confirmed after Saturday’s win over Wrexham that the O’s are in talks with Ebou Adams over a permanent move to Brisbane Road and also rubbished any rumours linking Macauley Bonne with a move away.

Adams has impressed since joining Orient in January, with his all action and tenacious performances in midfield making him one of the first names on the team-sheet.

The on-loan Norwich City midfielder looks set to leave Carrow Road this summer, with his contract due to expire at the end of the season.

But as we exclusively reported last month, while the midfielder is talks over a move to Brisbane Road, he has also attracted interest from both Football League and National League clubs.

Edinburgh has spoken previously of his desire to keep Adams at the club and said on Saturday that he hopes an agreement can be reached soon.

He said: “We’re in dialogue with Ebou’s representatives. The boy wants to continue to play well for Leyton Orient and I think a decision will be positive come the end of the season.”

One player who has been linked with a move away from Brisbane Road in recent weeks has been top scorer Bonne.

A report in the Sun claimed that Portsmouth, Shrewsbury Town and Burton Albion were all eyeing up a move for the striker in the summer, who scored his 24th goal of the season against Wrexham at the weekend.

Losing Bonne would be a huge blow for the O’s, with the former Colchester United man establishing himself as one of the most feared strikers in the National League since penning a two-year contract at Brisbane Road last summer.

However, Edinburgh rubbished any reports linking Bonne with a move away and said he was confident that he would still be a Leyton Orient player come August.

He said: “He’s our player. I stand here now and we’ve had no contact. We don’t invite anything. I believe Macauley will be a part of what we want to achieve next season and that’s pushing at the right end of the table.”
