Could We Be Seeing Ousmane Dembélé Playing His Football In The National League For Leyton Orient? We Think It’s Absolutely, Probably, Maybe Happening
National League side Leyton Orient are apparently lining up a sensational move for Dortmund’s breakthrough player of the season Ousmane Dembélé. The O’s will be looking to bounce back and return to the higher ranks of English football following a disappointing season and will be hoping that Dembele can supercharge that push up.
Dembele only signed a five-year deal with Dortmund last year but is said to want to test his skills in the National League where what he calls “real football and real fans” are found. Ousmane will be swapping his multi-million pound Dortmund estate for a different kind of estate as he lines up a move into a high-rise in East London.
With the club’s current transfer record sitting at just £200,000 for the signature of Liam Kelly last year – the East London club will have to smash that record many times over to get the deal done. Financial backing will come from EA Sports who this week confirmed that striker Josh Koroma will be the face and cover star of next year’s FIFA games for PlayStation and X-Box. The financial package will be a huge help as the club balance the books with mascot Theo The Wyvern penning a new 5 year deal that demands £75,000 per week making him the highest paid mascot in the English leagues.
Check Out The Wonderkid In Action For Dortmund
Orient’s chairman Nigel Travis reportedly held overnight talks with manager Steve David at the club’s HQ and the cleaners told us that the pair have a shortlist of targets agreed and more importantly – the money to make them happen.
Own Goal spoke to a man walking a cat on Brisbane Road and he told us “I’m glad to see Orient taking the steps required to put last season behind us. We’ve obviously lost a few lads with the relegation but if we can get this deal done and bring in a couple more of the same level, we’ll be back up with the big boys in no time”.
Who Is Ousmane Dembélé?
French-born Ousmane Dembélé has become one of world football’s brightest wonderkids on the back of a big move to German heavyweights Dortmund on the back of two successful seasons with Rennes. Scoring in 6 of his 32 run outs for Dortmund last season, the young talent caught the eye of many of the biggest clubs in the world as well as his fellow countrymen after he established himself into the national team.
