Leyton Orient striker James Alabi has joined National League side Eastleigh on loan for the rest of the season.

The Spitfires are currently 16th in the table and face struggling Chesterfield at home this Saturday.

The 25-year-old has not featured for the O's since their 4-2 defeat to Forest Green Rovers in November and has made 14 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring once.

Orient head coach Ross Embleton told the club website: “I think it’s a very good opportunity for James to go and play in a league that he knows well. It’s not been great for him this year in terms of the number of minutes he has got out on the pitch.

"It’s important for James, given the stage of his career and being out of contract at the end of the season, that he goes out and gets himself minutes on the pitch. He needs to be fully prepared, whether it be at Eastleigh or elsewhere at the end of the season to go and get himself another club and further his career beyond Leyton Orient.”
