Leyton Orient legend Dean Cox has refused to rule out a return to Brisbane Road in the future either as a player or coach.

The 30-year-old enjoyed a seven-year spell with Orient, making over 270 appearances in all competitions as he established himself as a fan favourite, but his time in East London was brought to an abrupt end in September 2016 when his contract was terminated by mutual consent.

Cox would join League 2 side Crawley Town nearly two weeks later, but was unable to make his debut for the club until January 2017, as he left Brisbane Road after the transfer window had slammed shut. However, the 30-year-old will be back at Brisbane Road in May when he features in the Errol McKellar charity match and he admitted he wouldn’t rule out a permanent return to the O’s in the future.

Speaking to the Guardian Series last week, Cox said: “It’s a club that I hold in high regard and I had a fantastic time there. I can’t predict anything but I’d never rule out coming back to Orient in some capacity because it’s such a fantastic football club.”
