Orient happy to sign Allsop

Allsop: Signed for Leyton Orient

Leyton Orient have signed former West Brom and Millwall goalkeeper Ryan Allsop, who impressed the club during the off-season.

The 20-year-old has agreed a six-month contract at Brisbane Road and will provide competition for Jamie Jones while Lee Butcher continues with his recovery from a serious knee injury.

O's boss Russell Slade told the club website: "Ryan is a goalkeeper with huge potential and he will provide stiff competition for Jamie Jones.

"Our goalkeeping coach Kevin Dearden has been very impressed with him over the pre-season period and he has been rewarded with this contract.

"He has been playing in Iceland over the summer so is in good shape and he is a keeper with great presence."
