Former Fulham prospect Elliot Omozusi is determined to rebuild his life at Leyton Orient.

Omozusi yesterday signed for the League One side until the end of the season and — 14 months after going to jail.

Orient terminated the former Fulham defender’s contract in November 2011 when he was given a two-and-a-half year prison sentence for intimidating a witness in a murder trial.

The 24-year-old has been training with Orient since his release in the autumn and the club have now given him a chance to revive his football career.

Manager Russell Slade said: “He has paid his dues now and is more determined than ever to get his career back on track.”
