Exclusive: Leyton Orient agree to sign Wycombe midfielder on loan

Wycombe Wanderers midfielder Nick Freeman has agreed a deal to join Leyton Orient, Football Insider can reveal.

He has not made the matchday squad for Wycombe’s last four games across all competitions.

A recruitment source has told Football Insider the League Two club have had a loan bid accepted for the 25-year-old.

Freeman signed his first professional deal at Adams Park in the summer of 2016 after impressing on trial.

He had previously played for non-league sides Histon and Hemel Hempstead Town but emerged as a key part of Wycombe’s rise up the leagues.

Gareth Ainsworth’s side won promotion from League Two in Freeman’s first season at the club and won the League One play-offs last term.

The Stevenage-born ace began his professional career with Wycombe Wanderers as a winger but has moved more central in recent seasons.

Across his 126 games for the Chairboys, he has played on both wings, in the middle of midfield, at right-back and as a striker.

He will be hoping to earn a second promotion from League Two with Orient who currently occupy the final play-off spot, but have played more games than sides below them.

Manager Ross Embleton has already added midfielder Dan Kemp on a permanent deal from West Ham United this month as they look to mount a promotion charge.

Orient have won their last three League Two games and are just three points off the automatic promotion places.
