Dagenham & Redbridge have signed midfielder Charlee Adams on a two-year deal.

The 22-year-old was released by Championship side Birmingham City earlier this summer, but has quickly found himself a new club.

Adams, who is originally from Redbridge, joined the Blues’ academy 2011 having previously been part of the West Ham United youth system.

The midfielder went on to make his debut for Birmingham in 2013 and later made two league appearances for City over the course of the next four years.

During his time with the St. Andrew’s outfit, Adams was twice sent out on loan to Lincoln City, giving him National League experience.

Last season saw Adams loaned to Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock, where he made nine appearances.

Adams will compete for the central midfield spots along with Matt Robinson, Andre Boucaud, Craig Robson and Tyrique Hyde and becomes Daggers’ sixth summer signing.

Former Daggers midfielder Frankie Raymond, meanwhile, has joined National League rivals Bromley.
