Morris: No new contract
Leyton Orient have offered new contracts to seven players and have released the same number, including long-serving goalkeeper Glenn Morris.
Following the end of the League One season, Os boss Russell Slade has made a decision regarding his squad and has opted to let several players leave in the summer.
Morris has spent the past nine years at Brisbane Road, but has not secured a new deal, while club captain Stephen Purches is also on his way.
Sean Thornton, Andrew Cave-Brown, Loick Pires, Harry Baker and James Scowcroft are the other players who have not been offered fresh terms.
However, while seven players are on the way out of Orient, Slade has made moves to keep the likes of Tamika Mkandawire and Jason Demetriou at the club.
They have been offered new contracts, along with Adam Chambers, Scott McGleish, Charlie Daniels, Ryan Jarvis and Cestor Mike.
In addition to the seven players being released, Eric Lichaj and John Spicer have returned to Aston Villa and Doncaster Rovers at the end of their loan spells.
