Cherries complete Allsop signing

Cherries complete Allsop signing

AFC Bournemouth have completed the signing of former Leyton Orient 'keeper Ryan Allsop.

Allsop became a free agent after leaving Leyton Orient earlier this week.

The Cherries had been linked with a January transfer move for the 'keeper over the past few weeks and following his contract expiring on Wednesday (16th) he left the League One side after contract negotiations stalled a month ago.

The 20 year old, who had made 24 appearances for Orient this season, has agreed a three and a half year deal at Dean Court subject to Football League clearance.

Howe told the Daily Echo...

"Ryan is a talented young goalkeeper and has got all the attributes. He is 6ft 3ins and a very good shot-stopper and kicker.

"I know Russell Slade and Leyton Orient were very disappointed to lose him, which says something about his potential.

"He is certainly one for the future but he is also good enough to play now so he will come into the mix immediately.

"We are delighted he chose us ahead of other clubs because he had several options on the table. I don't think the chance to sign him on a free transfer would have come up again and I think he represents very good value for the football club. We felt it was too good an opportunity to turn down so we took it."
