Dagenham and Redbridge's on loan striker Marvin Morgan has insisted he will not be returning to parent club Aldershot despite their change of manager.
Morgan left the Shots in acrimonious circumstances in January after leaving comments on social networking website Twitter directed at supporters after they aired their frustrations at his performance in a match.
The 27-year-old has now joined the Daggers until the end of the season, whilst Dean Holdsworth has replaced Kevin Dillon as manager after a run of poor results at Aldershot.
Despite the change at the helm of the Shots, Morgan insisted that he was happy with life at the League One side and wanted to remain there.
"I'm really enjoying my time here and the opportunity to play at League One level, so I was happy to hear that they didn't want me back there," Morgan told skysports.com
"Ive still got a lot of friends back there and I'm not bitter about how my time ended there.
"I will always want Aldershot to do well and wish them all the best."
The Daggers lost their fifth game at home this season on Saturday to MK Dons following a mistake from veteran goalkeeper Tony Roberts gifting them a last-minute winner, but Morgan stated that they will bounce back.
"It was disappointing, but these things happen in football," Morgan added.
"Robbo had it covered and then all of a sudden it went over him and into the net.
"Even when we went down to ten men we matched them, but lady luck isn't shining on us at the moment and our missed chances came back to haunt us.
"We should have taken advantage in the first-half with both myself and Gavin Tomlin missing a few chances.
"We can take confidence in how we approached the game and took it to them and hopefully we can start scoring a few to go with that."
