League One transfer latest: Doncaster finally land ex-Arsenal left back

All the latest summer transfer news from League One...

Doncaster Rovers have already lost a number of players, including goalkeeper Ross Turnbull, wingers Mark Duffy and David Cotterill, and striker Chris Brown. Now, left back James Husband has become the latest player to leave Paul Dickov's side, signing for Middlesbrough today in a part-exchange deal involving striker Curtis Main.

In his place comes former Arsenal trainee Cedric Evina. The former Gunners reserve team star left Charlton Athletic at the end of the season, and whilst a move to Crawley Town looked likely earlier this summer, he has chosen to reunite with his former Oldham boss Dickov at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Elsewhere, Coventry City have finally snapped up trialist Marcus Tudgay. The striker has been with the Sky Blues for some time, and has penned a one-year deal with Steven Pressley's side having been released by Nottingham Forest earlier this summer.

"I've been with them for two weeks and there are quality players in the team," Tudgay said. "I'm impressed and it was a no-brainer me coming here, I'm happy. I just want to crack on now, get my fitness higher and help the club. I've bought into what the gaffer wants and I'm happy with it, coming here was something I wanted."

Finally, Leyton Orient's strengthening looks set to continue. Russell Slade has brought in goalkeeper Gary Woods, left back Shane Lowry, midfielder Bradley Pritchard and winger Jobi McAnuff since Italian Francesco Becchetti took over the club, and now a new striker is on the agenda.

Former Arsenal youngster Jay Simpson is nearing a move to Orient, but it's Nottingham Forest's Darius Henderson who is undergoing a medical today ahead of a move to the Matchroom Stadium.
