JOSH Wright has left City and joined Leyton Orient on a free transfer.

The former Bantams captain had been linked with League Two new boys Leyton Orient, where he had two previous spells.

He joined City last summer, making 18 appearances.

Wright was at Wembley last month to watch Orient’s FA Trophy final defeat to Fylde.

The 29-year-old previously played for Justin Edinburgh, who died last week.

In a poignant tweet, Edinburgh's son Charlie retweeted Orient's announcement of Wright's arrival alongside the message: "Dad has got his boy."

The midfielder went down the pecking order at Valley Parade in the autumn despite starting last season with the club's armband, a duty given to him by former manager Michael Collins.

However, he didn't feature during David Hopkin's equally brief spell in the Bantams' hot seat.

He was given a second chance at the club by Gary Bowyer when he took over in March, playing a number of games before City's relegation from League One was confirmed in April.
