Leyton Orient have completed the signing of Barnsley striker Chris Dagnall on an 18-month contract.

The 27-year-old was released from his current deal at the Championship side last week and has made the trip down south to the League One side.

The striker came through the ranks at Tranmere Rovers before joining League Two side Rochdale where he scored 60 goals in 142 appearances. He went onto have a two-year spell at Scunthorpe before signing for Barnsley in 2012.

Dagnall scored 10 goals for Barnsley last season before enjoying a loan spell at Coventry City, he has already been handed the number 23 shirt and is expected to come straight into the squad for Saturday's trip to Crewe Alexandra.

Orient have had a busy transfer window so far bringing in six players already, with Millwall's Josh Wright, Stoke City's Jamie Ness, Spurs' Shaquile Coulthirst, Norwich's Jamar Loza and Hull City's Eldin Jakupovic all joining the League One side on loan but Dagnall is the first player to sign on a permanent basis this window.
