League Two side Leyton Orient have signed defender Rob Hunt on a two-year contract.

“He knows exactly the rotations we need, and where we want him on the pitch.”

Hunt played under Wellens at Swindon, when they won the League Two title on points-per-game after the season was called off due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The defender came through the youth ranks at West Ham United and Brighton & Hove Albion before signing his first professional contract with the Seagulls in 2013.
