League One side Leyton Orient have agreed to sign Bournemouth goalkeeper Shwan Jalal on a one-month loan deal.

The 30-year-old, who has not featured for the Cherries this season, will officially join the O's when the loan window re-opens on Saturday.

Orient number one Jamie Jones is currently sidelined with a back injury.

Ben Alnwick, who joined from Charlton on transfer deadline day, is also absent after being signed off on medical grounds.external-link

Iraq-born Jalal, a former Tottenham trainee, joined Bournemouth in August 2008 and has made a total of 170 appearances for the Dorset club.

He had a loan spell at Oxford United earlier this season but did not make an appearance for the League Two club.

"I know there's a real good set of players here so I'm just delighted to come into the group and be around the place," Jalal told the Orient website.external-link

"My goals are just to come in, play some games and fit into the team. I know the team are going extremely well."
