Grimsby have signed Leyton Orient striker Lee Thorpe on a month's loan.
Thorpe was recently placed on the transfer list and told his contract would not be renewed this summer.
The 28-year-old joined Orient in May, 2002 after spending five years with Lincoln City, during which time he scored 66 goals.
"I jumped at the chance to come to Grimsby. I'm hoping to impress and get a better deal," Thorpe told Grimsby's website.
