Former Aston Villa striker Jordan Bowery joins League Two side Leyton Orient

Leyton Orient have snapped up former Aston Villa striker Jordan Bowery on a two-year deal.

The 25-year-old has been a free agent since leaving Oxford United at the end of last season but has not had to wait long for new employment.

Orient, who have already made seven signings this summer, moved quickly to land Bowery as they bid to mount a League Two promotion push next term.

Orient is the eighth club of Bowery’s career, which has stalled since his £500,000 move to Villa back in August 2012.

He made 19 Premier League appearances for the club but left for Rotherham in 2014 having failed to score a senior goal.

He bagged seven in 17 for Oxford last term having joined in January and Orient will be hoping for a similar strike rate this season.
