Orient striker Lee Steele is reportedly on the verge of a move to League Two side, Chester City.

The 32 year old striker has failed to hold down a first team place despite scoring four times so far this season.

Chester manager, Mark Wright, is keen to sign the Liverpool born striker and give Steele the chance to play first team football.

‘Lee is keen to move back to his native North West, and I know if we can conclude a deal it will benefit both parties,’ Wright told City’s official website.

‘He is a proven goalscorer, and would be an asset to the club.’

Wright is also reportedly looking at signing Brentford striker Callum Willock if he is unsuccesful in bringing Steele to Chester.

City are currently looking for a striker after the departure of former Everton man, Michael Branch.
