Leyton Orient have signed former Fulham right-back Elliot Omozusi on a one-year deal with the option of a further year.

The 21-year-old Londoner is the third new defender to join the Brisbane Road outfit since the end of the 2009/10 campaign. Hackney-born Omozusi played eight Premier League games for Fulham prior to his release from Craven Cottage this summer.

O's boss Russell Slade told the club`s official website: "Elliot is a young defender who comes here with a good pedigree having played in the Premier League with Fulham and on loan with Norwich and Charlton."

He added: "He is a good athlete, he likes to get forward and he passes the ball well. He is also strong in one-against-one situations and we had the opportunity to view him last season when he trained with us for a couple of weeks.

"By his own admission he wants to get his career back on track and it's a good opportunity for both him and the club to move forward."
