Allsop joins Cherries

21 January 2013

Bournemouth have completed the signing of Ryan Allsop after the goalkeeper left Leyton Orient.

The 20-year-old, who has penned a three-and-a-half year deal at the Goldsands Stadium, made 24 appearances for Leyton Orient this season before his contract expired earlier this week.

"He is a young goalkeeper with a lot of potential to get better," Cherries boss Eddie Howe told the club's official website.

"He is a good size and a good kicker of the ball - he has all the attributes to be a really top goalkeeper.

"He is certainly going to be a valuable addition for the future."

Allsop started his career at West Brom, gaining five caps for England Under-17s, before joining Millwall in 2011.

The stopper also played in Iceland before joining up with Leyton Orient in July.

"He's coming here to compete for the number one shirt - he's not coming here to make up the numbers," Allsop added.

"It's up to me to pick who I think is the best but he's going to have a lot of competition for places."
