Jeffery loaned to Orient

West Ham United have agreed to let striker Jack Jeffery join League One club Leyton Orient on a one-month loan.

The 19-year-old Academy product has enjoyed a promising start to the 2008/09 season, including two goals in this week's 4-0 reserve-team friendly win against Norwich City. It will not be the first time Jeffery has left the Boleyn Ground to gain experience elsewhere as he spent three months with Cambridge United in the final three months of the last campaign. He also had a successful spell at Hampton and Richmond Borough at the end of 2007.

Jeffery could make his Orient debut at home to Stockport County on Saturday. The club, unbeaten in their last four matches in all competitions, are going well this season with eight points from their first five fixtures and sit ninth in the table. Speaking to the club's official website, manager Martin Ling said: "He's a player that we've watched an awful lot of and he will be a good addition to the squad."
