Guttridge, who initially joined on loan from Southend before making the move permanently to Brisbane Road, is out of contract at the end of the season and looks certain to move on

The O`s would like to keep hold of Guttridge and have offered him a sizeable contract offer, but with a number of Championship clubs and Premiership side Charlton expressing their interest, it appears that Luke`s future lies away from E10.

There is a great deal of interest in Luke and a number of clubs are looking at him,’ his representative Richard Cody confirmed to skysports.com.

The Championship is at the very least where Luke belongs and it is almost certain that is where he will be going.’

Cody paid tribute to Orient, who are keen for Guttridge to stay.
‘This is in no way showing disrespect to Orient, Luke loves it there,’ added Cody.

‘They have made him a very good offer, but at Luke’s age he wants to be playing higher than League One ideally.”

‘It is the first time since he was very young that he has been free of a contract and so he is keeping his options open.’
