Dagenham & Redbridge have agreed a deal to sign Medy Elito following the midfielder's departure from Colchester United.

Elito was released by Colchester at the end of last season and will finalise a two-year contract with Dagenham, subject to completing a medical.

The 20-year-old enjoyed a spell on loan at Dagenham last season and scored twice in 10 appearances, including a goal on his debut against Yeovil Town.

He also had a stint on loan at Cheltenham Town last term after struggling to break into the Colchester team under John Ward.

Elito becomes Daggers boss John Still's first signing of the summer as the club prepare for life back in League Two following last season's relegation.
