Robbie Simpson has joined the League One pacesetters

The 28-year-old former Coventry and Huddersfield forward has been without a club since leaving Oldham at the end of last season.

Orient manager Russell Slade told the club website. "Robbie could prove to be a really handy signing for us.

"We know we have a small squad so need players that are versatile and he can play up front or in midfield plus he's a great character to join the group too.

"We need to find out where he is in terms of his fitness as he's been at a few clubs over the summer but not had a full pre-season but we'll soon get him up to speed."
