“The first meeting I had with the manager ( Kenny Jackett); he sold the club to me, the plans he had for me and the plans for the club.” 

Jackett said: “He strengthens our frontline, and he has a little bit of everything. 

"He’s 6ft 1in, he’s quite quick and will attack the first ball, as well as get down the sides of defenders.

“I have seen a lot of potential in him, and I’m really pleased he has dropped down a level to join Leyton Orient. 

"He bolsters our attacking options, and with his pace and strength I think he’ll cause trouble for defenders.

”He’s 23, and I think he’s coming into his strongest years. I’ve seen enough to know I want to work with him, and I think he’ll be a real asset for us.”
