Dagenham & Redbridge attacker Corey Whitely has signed for National League rivals Ebbsfleet United for an undisclosed fee.

The 25 year-old joined the Daggers in August 2016 from Enfield Town and made his debut in a National League game at Woking and scored his first goal at Bromley on his way to being named the Clubs player of the season.

The forward has since scored 24 goals in 72 appearances.

He got off to a strong start to the season as he netted eight times in the first ten fixtures of the 2017/18 season and attracted interest from a handful of Football League clubs including the likes of Coventry City and Gillingham.

A club statement: “We’d like to thank Corey for his time at the Daggers and wish him every success for the future.”

Whitely could go into the squad for Fleet’s trip to Halifax Town this weekend.

Ebbsfleet United manager Daryl McMahon told the club website: “We’ve really put in the hours trying to secure players.

“I’ve always maintained I wanted the right ones and Corey fits the bill.

“He’s an exciting player with a great couple of seasons behind him that I hope he’ll build on here at Ebbsfleet.”
