Hedges joins Orient on loan
Young Swansea City forward Ryan Hedges has joined League One club Leyton Orient on a one-month loan deal.
The 19-year-old has been in impressive form for the club’s Under-21 side this season, scoring five goals to help lift them to the top of the Pro Development League Two South table.
Hedges, who can play either on the wing or as a striker, could go straight into manager Fabio Liverani’s squad for the trip to Preston tonight (Friday).
Hedges joins an Orient side, who boasts ex-Swan Kevin Nugent as assistant coach, that is currently fifth from bottom in League One.
