Leyton Orient have signed former Reading midfielder Jobi McAnuff on a two year deal.

The 32-year-old led the Royals in the Premier League two seasons ago and was also wanted by Nottingham Forest.

In his past career, he has also played for West Ham, Cardiff, Crystal Palace and Watford.

“It’s been a long summer for me,” revealed McAnuff. “I’ve had a few offers but have been waiting for the right fit and I believe I’ve found it here at Orient.

“The more I spoke to the manager and learned about the Club, it just seems a great place to be.”
