O’s defender Charlie Daniels looks set to join League One rivals Bournemouth after both clubs confirmed a deal was in place.

Orient’s official website stated: “Charlie Daniels has agreed to sign for AFC Bournemouth in a deal that will net the O’s a six-figure fee.”

Bournemouth’s official website today also confirmed that a deal was in place, stating; “The Cherries are set to complete the signing of left back Charlie Daniels from Leyton Orient today on loan with a view to a permanent deal in January.”

Cherries boss Lee Bradbury had confirmed his interest in the 25-year-old, who has been a consistent performer for the E10 club this season, and O’s chairman Barry Hearn confirmed that the Spurs academy graduate had yesterday been undergoing a medical on the south coast.

Hearn told the Daily Echo yesterday: “Terms have been agreed between us and Charlie Daniels is there having a medical. I understand he has agreed personal terms but that has not been confirmed to me and I am waiting to hear back from Bournemouth on whether the deal is going to be concluded today.

“I am always unhappy to lose a quality player but I have to live in the real world. Charlie is out of contract with us at the end of this season and could have sat on his contract and moved as a free agent.”

He added: “He has done brilliantly for Leyton Orient and I wish him the very best of luck in his career. He is an exceptionally nice lad and he will be an asset to any side.”

Daniels will join initially on loan before a signing a three-and-a-half year deal, with the Echo also reporting the fee to be around £200,000.

The defender has played 175 games for the Brisbane Road side, scoring four goals during his time with the O’s.
