Nolan to return - at Orient

Filed: Tuesday, 19th January 2016
By: Staff Writer

Former Hammers captain Kevin Nolan is set to return to the game - as player/manager of League One Leyton Orient.

The third-tier side parted company with another former Hammer earlier this week when they dismissed former Hammers coach Ian Hendon after just seven months in the post.

And KUMB understands that the Os are poised to name Nolan, who spent four years at West Ham between 2011 and 2015 as his replacement imminently.

Nolan joined West Ham following the club's relegation from the Premier League in 2011 and was Sam Allardyce's first signing when succeeding Avram Grant.

The former captain led West Ham to play-off success against Blackpool at Wembley in 2012 before helping the club re-establish itself as a top flight force.
