Leyton Orient have signed Birmingham City defender Neil Eardley on a one-month loan.

The 26-year-old right-back has moved to Brisbane Road in a short-term deal and could make his debut at Colchester United this weekend with Elliot Omozusi currently sidelined due to a hip injury.

Eardley has made six appearances for the Championship club this season with his last game coming earlier this month in the FA Cup win at Blyth Spartans. 

The Wales international started his career at Oldham Athletic and joined Blackpool before moving on to Birmingham City.
