Leyton Orient have resolved a "number of matters" with the English Football League relating to Francesco Becchetti's ownership of the club.

The Italian businessman sold the O's to a consortium in the summer after their relegation from League Two.

Orient say they have reached a "mutually acceptable conclusion" relating to several "outstanding regulatory and disciplinary matters".

The EFL confirmed the National League club have settled their issues.

"We are very grateful to the EFL for their assistance and pragmatic view on the issues our club faced over the last few seasons," chairman Nigel Travis said in a statement on the club website.external-link
