Orient winger Shane Tudor has admitted that his decision to move back to the Midlands made Martin Ling`s decision a lot easier. The diminutive winger is thought to be in talks with both Walsall and Port Vale, a move that would suit Tudor.

He said: ‘I’ve not made a secret of wanting to move back to the Midlands and I think that helped the manager make his decision on me.

‘While I’ve got a lot of good friends down here, I don’t have any family so I want to move closer to home and I would also like to be there for my mum as well.

“I’ve loved my time at Orient and I would like to think I played a major role in helping us get promoted last season, as well as the fantastic FA Cup run we had.

‘I know this campaign hasn’t gone as well
because of injuries, but if you look at all the important games we have won lately like at Bradford last week I believe I’ve made some valuable contributions in helping us stay up.

‘I’m sure the fans will appreciate what I’ve done during my time here and having my name on a lot of the young Orient supporters’ shirts has made me very proud and hopefully I will get a good reception if I come back next season.’
