Romain Vincelot has agreed a new three-year contract with Leyton Orient. The Frenchman initially joined the O’s in early February following his release from Brighton in January. His contract expired at the end of the 2012/13 campaign, but he has now committed his future to the club.
Vincelot made his debut as a late substitute in a 2-1 win over Tranmere and he quickly established himself as a regular in the Orient side, going on to make 13 starts and another sub appearance. His only goal for the club so far came in the 4-1 win over Carlisle at Brisbane Road in March. He also displayed his versatility by filling in as a centre back towards the end of the season. His impressive contributions earned him the Total Orient Man of the Match Award on three occasions and he has become a popular figure amongst Orient fans.
Chief Executive Matt Porter revealed on Twitter that Vincelot had been a long term target for Russell Slade:
Of the three players that were offered new contracts at the end of the season, only David Mooney is yet to agree a new deal with the club.
