Hull City winger Calaum Jahraldo-Martin to leave on loan

Leyton Orient 2

HITC Sport understands that a deal has been agreed with Leyton Orient.

Leyton Orient have struck a deal with Hull City to sign forward Calaum Jahraldo-Martin, HITC Sport understands.

With Jay Simpson likely to be leaving the club this month, Orient have targeted some attacking options to bolster their squad and Jahraldo-Martin is the first they have been able to secure.

The Antigua and Barbuda international joined Hull in 2013 when they scouted him playing for non-league Dulwich Hamlet.

Jahraldo-Martin has been on the fringes of the first-team picture and has made his debut, but he has also spent time out on loan at Tranmere Rovers and Alloa Athletic.

Now he has agreed to move to Orient on an initial one-month loan although if he impresses he could very well stay on for the remainder of the season.

Hull are third in the Championship table at the moment with 44 points from 24 matches, five points behind leaders Middlesbrough, who have a game in hand.
