The O’s have signed winger Calaum Jahraldo-Martin on an initial one-month loan deal from Championship side Hull City.

Jahraldo-Martin, 22, impressed for Orient in the recent friendly at Bishop’s Stortford and is available to go straight into the squad for today’s match at Stevenage, and will wear shirt number 30 during his stay in E10.

The youngster was initially with Dulwich Hamlet and helped them to the Ryman South title before impressing Hull City boss Steve Bruce while on a two-week trial with the Tigers and earned an 18-month contract at the KC Stadium.

Jahraldo-Martin made his Hull debut against Orient back in a League Cup tie in 2013, and has featured off the bench twice for the Tigers this season in a 1-1 draw in the Championship against Wolves and a 1-0 League Cup win over Rochdale.

Loan spells at Tranmere Rovers and Alloa Athletic have followed, while the winger is also a Antigua and Barbuda international having represented them on six occasions to date, and scoring his first international goal in a 6-0 Caribbean Cup qualification win against Anguilla.
