Dagenham & Redbridge are reportedly interested in bringing back former Leyton Orient right-back Sam Ling.

The 24-year-old, who has spent the past three and a half seasons with the  O’s, after joining from the Daggers back in February 2018.

The right-back played a key role as Orient won the National League title during the 2018/19 season.

Ling went on to become a regular for the O's in the seasons that followed where he made 80 appearances in all competitions, finding the net on two occasions.

Leyton Orient director and dad Martin Ling was keen to thank the National League title winning members on the release list, by saying: “It’s important we thank them for the work they put in, and recognise they will always be a big part of our history, in getting us out of the National League. “

“They deserve a special recognition, as they helped us get the club to where it is as this precise moment.”
