Leyton Orient have completed the signing of former Newport County and Notts County defender Jamie Turley on a deal until the end of the season.

Turley’s departure from Notts County was confirmed on Monday after terms for a contract extension at the Magpies could not be reached.

Turley, 28, comes in to bolster the defensive ranks after recent injuries to Josh Coulson against Salford City and Marvin Ekpiteta in Saturday's FA Trophy win Wrexham.

The centre-back will wear the number 23 shirt while with the club and the deal is subject to FA and National League approval.

Turley told the O's website: "I'm really happy to be here, the club's in a great position and it's something I couldn't really turn down. I'm looking forward to getting going.

"I'm really committed. That's the minimum [the fans can expect], they pay their hard-earned money every week so they want to see a player at least try hard."

Head coach Justin Edinburgh said: “He’s someone I know really well. I [as a manager] have come up against him for a few clubs and have always been impressed. I have tried to sign him on one or two occasions but unfortunately missed out on the race.

“For me, he’s someone who does what it says on the tin, he knows this level and was in the Boreham Wood side that got to the final of the play-offs last year."
