Striker Ade Azeez turned down the opportunity to return to Dagenham & Redbridge on a permanent basis, and has instead opted to join League rivals AFC Wimbledon.

Striker Ade Azeez turned down the opportunity to return to Dagenham & Redbridge on a permanent basis, and has instead opted to join League rivals AFC Wimbledon.

The 20-year-old finished last season on loan at Victoria Road, scoring the winner in the 3-2 final-day triumph at Cheltenham that sealed a ninth-place finish in League Two for Wayne Burnett’s side.

The Daggers chief had entered discussions with Azeez about a permanent move after his contract expired at Championship side Charlton Athletic, but their offer was rejected, and the striker has now linked up with the Dons.

“We had talks with Ade Azeez about coming over on a permanent basis, but they broke down from a finanical aspect,” said Burnett.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
