Bonne, who will come face to face with Liverpool and Egypt star Mohamed Salah at AFCON, has a reported £200 000 in his contract.

Leyton is reported to have offered Bonne a lucrative new. Speaking to Talksport last week, Bonne said:

I took a step down out of the league to prove that I could play minutes and score goals.

Now we’re back in the Football League, it’s my chance to show everyone, especially at Colchester, what I can do back in the Football League. I hoped they would have given me more of a chance but that’s football – it doesn’t go the way you always want it to go.

I can’t thank everyone at Orient enough for doing that for me. Now I can show everyone in League Two what I can do, hopefully.

Where else would I want to be? I’m the main man at the minute. My eyes aren’t being wondered whatsoever.

Bonne is optimistic that next season his club could be fighting for promotion to League One. He added:

It’s exciting to see what we can do in League Two.

You’ve seen the likes of Tranmere and Forest Green who have come up from the Conference and are fighting for promotion to League One.

I’d say we’re just as good or even better than some of the teams in there. I see us doing that next season if we all stick together.
