Leyton Orient have signed Hull City goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic on a one-month loan.

The O's have been searching for a new keeper after Jamie Jones suffered a hairline fracture in his back which has ruled him out for about three months.

Orient boss Russell Slade has brought in the 6ft 4in Swiss shot stopper until February 8 and he is expected to make his debut at Shrewsbury Town tonight. 

Jakupovic, who has played just once this season, lined up against the O's twice in last season's FA Cup meetings. 

He has represented both Bosnia-Herzegovina and Switzerland at Under-21 level whilst he also has one full cap for Switzerland and was part of their Euro 2008 squad.
