Leyton Orient defender Mathieu Baudry has signed a two-year extension to his contract and will stay at the League One club until the summer of 2016.

The 25-year-old joined the O's from Bournemouth last summer and scored four goals in 35 appearances last season.

"It's been agreed in principle for some time but there were a couple of minor details to sort and I'm glad it's done now," he told the club website.external-link

"I like my life here and I'm enjoying my football."

Orient boss Russell Slade described Baudry's contract extension as "fantastic news".

"Mathieu played a very important part in the second half of last season and showed what a good player he is at this level," Slade said.

"Now he has a great opportunity to build on that."
