The club can confirm the signing of striker Rowan Liburd from Stevenage on a loan deal until the end of the season.

Liburd, 24, joined the Boro in the summer for a five-figure fee from Championship side Reading, and has netted three goals in 18 appearances for the Broadhall Way outfit.

The striker made the move to Reading after impressing for non-league outfit Billericay Town, and while with the Royals netted 11 goals in 14 games for their under-21 side.

While with Billericay, Liburd netted 22 goals during the 2014-15 season for the Blues to alert the attention of the Madejski Stadium side, and impressed enough on trial to secure a two-year deal.

The striker is available to boss Danny Webb for Saturday’s home encounter with Carlisle United and an interview with Liburd will follow later this afternoon on and Orient PlayerHD, available for as little as £4.49 a month.
