Leyton Orient have signed Brighton defender Andrew Whing on loan.

The 26-year-old former Coventry right-back has agreed a deal to stay at Brisbane Road until January.

Whing played under Os boss Russell Slade at Brighton but has lost his first-team spot under current Seagulls manager Gus Poyet.

"Andy will give us more strength in depth defensively," said Slade.

"He's a really good type so I'm pleased we've got his signature."
