"The chairman and the CEO of Leyton Orient have received a resignation letter from Russell Slade a few minutes ago," said the Orient hierarchy.

"This has not happened by chance after the club rejected this afternoon, a proposal from the general manager of Cardiff City regarding the transfer of Russell Slade. The lawyers of the club are now studying the file."
