Nick Freeman has become Leyton Orient’s second signing of the January transfer window after joining on loan from Wycombe.

The 25-year-old midfielder has agreed to move to Brisbane Road until the end of the season and follows in the footsteps of Dan Kemp, who joined on a permanent deal on Friday.

Freeman has spent the last five years at Wycombe and helped them win promotion to both League One and the Championship, where he has made seven appearances this season.

Orient head coach Ross Embleton said on his club’s website: “I’m really pleased to sign a player of his quality. I’m really excited to work with him.”

Freeman said: “I’m buzzing to be here. This is a big club. I’ve played against Leyton Orient. They have high expectations and I’m excited to be here.

“I’ve met some of the staff and the boys already and they’ve made me feel as welcome as they can.

“I’m at an age now where I feel I need to get some games and get a bit of a flow going. It’s been a bit stop-start at Wycombe. Obviously I’ve had some great moments there so far, but I got the call from Ross saying that he was interested and he sold it to me perfectly, what the club is like and their ethos, and it sounded like a great place to go and express myself.

“The boss liked me, liked what he saw, explained that the staff are really close, they do things right, the way they play, what he explained fit in with what I like, so I was interested from the get go.”

Going the other way is Jordan Maguire-Drew, who has joined Crawley Town on loan for the remainder of the season.

Embleton said that the move was perfect for the midfielder, who has struggled to nail down a position in the Orient XI.

“We care about our people at this football club,” said the manager on the club website.

“Sometimes things don’t happen. He’s not been able to break into the team.

“This works perfectly for Jordan. It’s a club that’s close to where he lives. It’s a good opportunity to go and get minutes and make an impression.”
