Former Dagenham & Redbridge loanee Luke Norris has a big summer ahead of him after he was offered a new deal at Brentford.

The 20-year-old scored 10 goals in 34 games in the Football League in two loan spells at Northampton Town and Daggers over the course of the campaign.

Norris had predicted a season of under-21 football at the Bees, but the youngster has been pleased with how it has gone.

“Before the season started I was just going to be playing under-21 football so if someone had said to me you would get 10 professional goals this season I would have snapped your hand off,” said Norris, whose loan spell ended after picking up an ankle injury against Northampton last weekend.

“It’s a good stepping stone for me and now I can hope for a full season in the Football League and improve on it.”

Norris has been offered a new deal with the Bees, but with their promotion to the Championship, first-team opportunities may remain slim.

The Daggers loanee is contemplating the offer, but first and foremost he would love to be playing first-team football next season.

“I have spoken to Brentford and I know that they have offered me something but we’ll just have to wait and see,” he added.

“First-team football is all you want to do as a young player and I think the more games that I can play, the more experience I can get playing week in week out in the Football League I think it will massively make me improve as a player.

“My contract is up this year, so it’s quite a big summer for me so I’ll have to sit down and see what suits me best.”

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.
