The 26-year-old, who joined the O’s from Millwall only last summer, made 40 appearances in all competitions for Orient as the club suffered relegation into League Two.

However; Lowry is now free to leave Brisbane Road due to a clause in his contract following their dip into the English bottom tier, with a number of Championship and League One sides taking note.
