Cheltenham Town manager John Ward has made Leyton Orient striker Paul Connor his fourth signing of the January transfer window. The 28-year old moves to Whaddon Road for an initial £20,000 transfer fee, with a further £5,000 payable if the Robins avoid relegation this term. "I'm very pleased that we've been able to do this deal to bring Paul Connor to the club," Ward told the club's official website. "He's a hard-working forward player who scored on his last appearance for Orient on Saturday. "He'll provide us with another option up front and I'm sure he will form a good relationship with our other forward players. "The move to Leyton Orient didn't really work out for him, but Paul comes highly recommended by his previous club, Swansea City and I know he's very keen to play and get things going with us."
