Opinion: Leyton Orient need to go all out to land Championship man in the next transfer window

Ipswich Town midfielder Idris El Mizouni has been a hit on loan at Leyton Orient over the past couple of seasons.

Leyton Orient first brought him in back in 2022 and he helped them gain promotion from League Two last year under Richie Wellens.

El Mizouni, 23, then returned to Brisbane Road last summer for a second spell.

He has now picked up an injury that has ruled him out for the rest of the season. However, the O’s need to try and sign him permanently in the next window.

Leyton Orient need to sign loan man

El Mizouni returns to Ipswich at the end of this campaign and sees his contract with the Championship promotion hopefuls expire in late June. They hold an option to extend his stay by a further 12 months.

His chances of staying at Portman Road depend on what league they are in. If Kieran McKenna’s men go up to the Premier League, he is very unlikely to break into their first-team and that could boost Leyton Orient’s chances of landing him permanently.

The Tractor Boys signed him back in 2017 and he has played 26 times for their senior team, as well as having temporary spells away at Cambridge United and Grimsby Town to boost his development.

He has found a home at Leyton Orient over the past couple of terms and signing him would be a big statement of intent by Wellens’ men.

The Paris-born man has played 89 games for the London outfit to date, chipping in with five goals and three assists.

El Mizouni injects quality into their ranks and at the age of 23 still, he has bags of potential and has the capacity to get even better down the line.

Ipswich need to decide what to do with him next and will carefully weigh up his options. For now though, they are solely focused on their push for the top two.

As for Leyton Orient, they have had a decent season but have missed out on the play-offs. They have lost their last two fixtures against Lincoln City and Peterborough United.
