Shaun Batt has joined the O’s on loan

Leyton Orient have swooped to sign out of favour Millwall striker Shaun Batt on a one-month loan.

The 25-year-old has only played one minute of Championship football since the turn of the year and his move to the League One club will give him some much-needed playing time.

Batt has joined Orient until March 2 and goes straight into the squad for Saturday’s match at Stevenage.

Millwall manager Kenny Jackett told the club website: “It’s a great opportunity for Shaun to get some first team minutes under his belt.

“He’s been used mainly as a substitute so far this season but can hopefully start some games during his time with Orient.”
