Released Millwall striker signs two-year contract with Orient

STRIKER Shaun Batt has penned a two-year deal with Leyton Orient after being allowed to leave Millwall on a free transfer.

NewsAtDen revealed last week that the Lions had discontinued contract talks with the 26-year-old and that he was set to join a new club this summer.

And O's boss Russell Slade has moved quickly to secure Batt's signature. Batt scored three goals in 13 appearances whilst on loan at Brisbane Road last season.

Slade said: "We are delighted to get Shaun signed up. He made a great impact when he came on loan with us and we wanted to keep him longer than we could do in the end.

"Shaun had attracted interest from the likes of Notts County and Preston so it is great that we can get him on board."

    Batt still can do a good job at that level. Good luck to him, he did his best for us.

        @NICKOLA: too true, its simple really isn't it. Funny that so many players just don't get it. I once brought my Charlton supporting nephew to a game and he just couldn't get his head round thevfact that our fans worshipped the tryers and criticised the more technical players for lack of spirit.

      Agree but the problem is that they're under contract and no one has come in for them. They need to be transfer listed just like Wolves did yesterday with 4 of their players now on the list and Bolton are currently doing.

          I did see him on the list. His wages would be a stumbling block though as from what I can make out he's on a good earner currently and that's assuming Lomas rates him. Jackett obviously doesn't having had him at Millwall. Personally I'd rather have Bailey if it came down to a choice, much more a Millwall type of player. Going to be an interesting few days to see who's coming in and who's going out. Much more exciting for Millwall in June than usual and that's for sure.

    Rather than f--- him off and sh--t on him as some contributors have said on here I think the club has done the right thing for Shaun. He was never going to be anything more than a fringe player / sub at best.
    By letting him go he has gone to a club where he will get regular 1st team football and who knows and appreciates him. He will be able to relax more with his football as he will be more in his comfort zone and his confidence will improve and I would imagine he will be a happier better player for it. It must be so demoralising sitting on the bench each week just hoping to get a few minutes on the pitch at best.
    So good luck Shaun and all the best for the future and thanks for helping get us promoted and of course that goal that kept us up.

      @Sealion: Sealion I echo you sentiment, but I was never a fan of Shaun because I did not think he was good enough for the championship, but when he played he gave 100% and looked like he wanted to do well for the club, if we had a few more like him but with more ability at this level we would have a very good side both in sprit and ability.
      I wish him all the best at the "Os" and I hope he stays injury free as mentioned by several others in there posts there did seem others who did not have as much caricaiture as Shaun who should have gone before him, but lets hope SL has just started to prune the wasters from the squad.

      @Sealion: Totally agree Sealion. Just think that if any of the squad that needed to go he would have been last on my list to have been released. I know some are still on a contract but it must mean something that he's gone first from the shop window and DN'G or the other bloke are still on the shelf.

        @REAL Supporter: I think the reason he has gone so quickly is because he impressed on loan at the O's and they are offering him a TWO year deal, which is great for a player that had such a bad injury and probably a year more than he would ever have got with us. I suspect that the O's deal was in the bag before he was released by us.

    I think that's fair for all parties involved.
    What amazed is the fact that Shaun was approached by the O's via his Twitter account.

      @REAL Supporter:
      Yeah he's just bought a house up north or something. Cant blame him, he probably wants to give it another year to see how it goes. A player never wants to leave somewhere where he thinks he has unfinished business and he's only been there since January. This was always a non starter in my book....IMHO

        @Windy: No, neither can I really but I did understand that the Lids fans weren't that enamoured with him. You're right though it was a 'non-starter' perhaps, just more gossip.

    Sky are reporting that now we've made an enquiry for Lee Martin who's out of contract at Ipswich. He's done the rounds and was on United's books at one time. Classified as a left winger/midfielder.
    Anyone know anything about him?

      Absolutely no idea. Didn't see him in the training ground photos on the official site and haven't heard him mentioned in despatches recently.

            I think he's going to have to bring in some very good players before he makes that sort of announcement.

    I think it's because of him we're being linked to most of these players. Someone has certainly got some big balls cause I can't ever remember us being linked to so many good ones. Ok it's one thing being linked and another actually signing but you'd have to admit it looks good at the moment. It only takes one or two to sign and the rest will follow
    Pleasantly surprised to say the least.
    At least SL is working his nuts off and not afraid to ask for help.

      Certainly invigorating at the moment. As you say, we get one good one in to start and the others will follow. I really think that Lomas is putting together a team, albeit in his head at the moment. Some of the players he's being linked with would certainly brighten my day if they come onboard. I'll be really impressed if he recognises the deadwood currently masquerading as Millwall players and gets rid off pronto. Don't give up on Morison just yet by the way.

        @NICKOLA: haha you and Moro you do make me laugh lol
        I haven't checked me lotto tickets yet if I've won I'll by Moro and let you sponsor him.
        He'll recognise the deadwood before the season starts but he may not be able to rid em just yet. Some are under contract so would be ridiculously hard to off load. Pretty sure he'd have watched our run in on video by now so would have a very good idea.
        We'll see.

    Lee Martin has always looked like a decent player, but he struggled to hold down a regular place at Ipswich over the last couple of seasons and was farmed out to Charlton for a spell. According to an Ipswich mate, Martin feels his strongest position is as an attacking midfielder playing just off the strikers - he scored a lot of goals as a kid at Man United - but that didn't fit with the way Mick McCarthy wanted to play.
    Roy Keane paid United around £1.5million when he was in charge at Ipswich, so he can't be a complete mug. If SL can get him firing on all cylinders and he fits into the way he intends to play he could be a very useful addition.

    There is a lot of speculation and names bandied about based on newspaper tittle-tattle at the moment, nothing concrete. A number of championship clubs are signing players already. I wish and hope there are a few signings soon..just to give us some hope for the future!

    I must show my appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of such a challenge. Just after exploring throughout the world-wide-web and seeing proposals that were not productive, I assumed my entire life was over. Being alive devoid of the approaches to the problems you have fixed through your guideline is a serious case, and those that could have in a wrong way affected my entire career if I hadn't come across your web blog. Your main talents and kindness in touching every aspect was excellent. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn't encountered such a step like this. I'm able to at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot very much for your high quality and amazing guide. I won't hesitate to refer your web blog to any person who would need direction about this topic.
