AFC Bournemouth transfer target Ryan Allsop has become a free agent after leaving Leyton Orient.

The Cherries have been linked with a January transfer move for the ‘keeper over the past few weeks and following his contract expiring on Wednesday (16th) he has now left the League One side after contract negotiations stalled a month ago.

The 20 year old, who had made 24 appearances for Orient this season, joined the club in the summer from Millwall on a six month contract.

Both the Cherries and Championship side Bristol City were reportedly interested according to the East London and West Essex Guardian at the start of the year, whilst Sky Sports reported that talks had begun with the Cherries over the possible signing a couple of weeks ago…

…a deal is in the process of being discussed, with the Cherries keen to get an agreement put in place during the January window.

According to the Daily Echo‘s Neil Perrett on Twitter, AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe had a ‘fruitful’ meeting with Cherries co-owner Maxim Demin on Monday and the Cherries have since been linked with Ryan Allsop and Aberdeen’s Ryan Fraser.

The Echo’s Neil Meldrum in a conversation regarding the two potential targets later tweeted: ‘Don’t be surprised if it happens in the next 48 hours.’
