Leyton Orient have completed the signing of Dagenham & Redbridge striker Conor Wilkinson on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Wilkinson scored 12 goals in 23 appearances for the Daggers last season as they battled towards the bottom of the National League.

The forward, who has represented the Republic of Ireland at three different youth levels, going up to the under-21s, started his youth career at Millwall before being picked up by Bolton Wanderers, where he made his senior debut.

The 24-year-old spent time out on loan in both non-league and the Football League, firstly on a month’s deal at Chester where he scored on his debut against Aldershot Town, before joining Torquay United on another one-month deal the season they were relegated from League Two.

Wilkinson then had two spells at Oldham Athletic as well as Barnsley, Newport County, Portsmouth and Chesterfield before sealing a permanent move to Gillingham for the start of the 2017/18 season.

He spent his second season with the Gills on loan at Dagenham, and then sealed a permanent move to the side earlier this year.

The move comes after Charlton Athletic completed the signing of O’s striker Macauley Bonne earlier today, with the Championship side having activated his release clause.
