Dean Cox: Attracting interest from a number of clubs ahead of the January transfer window
Sky Sports understands a number of clubs are weighing up a move for Leyton Orient midfielder Dean Cox.
Cox has established himself a key player at Orient since arriving in 2010 from Brighton and was rewarded with a new deal last January.
The 25-year-old is regarded as one of the best talents outside the top two divisions and his performances have not gone unnoticed.
Cox has shown an eye for the spectacular and he scored one of the goals of the season in the win over Walsall in October when finding the net from inside his own half
The likes of Blackpool, Peterborough and MK Dons are all thought to be long-term admirers of the skilful winger.
Orient would be loathe to lose Cox, but they could face a fight to fend off his suitors if they come calling in January.
