Interest mounts in Baudry

A number of Championship clubs are keeping tabs on Leyton Orient defender Mathieu Baudry, Sky Sports understands.

Baudry has established himself as a key member of Russell Slade's side since arriving from Bournemouth in the summer of 2012.

The highly-rated centre-back impressed last season in helping Orient reach the League One play-off final and his performances have not gone unnoticed higher up the football pyramid.

Baudry was rewarded with a new deal at Orient last summer until 2016, but it is believed the Frenchman has a buy-out clause of 200,000 in his contract.

The news has alerted several sides, with the likes of former club Bournemouth, Brentford and Charlton all tracking Baudry as they look to bolster their defensive options.
