Skysports report that Leyton Orient have turned down an initial offer for their influental captain Stephen Dawson.

After a excellent start to the season numerous clubs have been linked to Dawson but it seems Keith Hill has made the first move.

Dawson, who has previously played for Bury and Mansfield is entering the final 6 months of his contract, but it seems they aren’t willing to let the Irishman leave on the cheap.

Orient still hold hope that he may extend his stay at Brisbane Road and have openly stated that they won’t be discussing a transfer while there is a chance of this.
