League Two Leyton Orient are expected to name former Newcastle and West Ham midfielder Kevin Nolan as their new player-manager.

The 34-year-old midfielder has been without a club since leaving Upton Park last year. At one point he looked like he would sign as a player at Brisbane Road, but a deal was never completed.

This will be Nolan's first foray into management.
