DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE expected to tie up the signing of former Hayes & Yeading midfielder Will Hendry in the next few days, writes MIKE SIMMONDS.
The 22-year-old, who made three appearances in the Championship for Millwall back in 2006, was a team-mate of Josh Scott last season, and netted 14 times for the Blue Square South side.
He has been training with the Daggers recently, and manager John Still hopes to complete a deal soon.
"I've known about Will for a long time, as I saw him when he was at Millwall," he told the Post.

That might not be the end of Still's dealings, as he hinted there could be another new face on his way to the club.
"There is also something else that might be happening, but it isn't affected by the window either and I will know in the next few days about that," added the boss, who brought in Portsmouth midfielder Tom Kilbey on loan this week.
"We saw Tom quite a lot last season when were watching Matty (Ritchie), we liked him, so hopefully he will do well when he is here."
After Daggers' fine 3-0 triumph over Lincoln City on Saturday, it wasn't just the players who were in the spotlight, as Still himself was linked with a move away from Victoria Road, with Colchester United the destination.
Former Watford boss Aidy Boothroyd was appointed on Wednesday, but Still was never interested in leaving the club anyway.
"I have had lots of questions about that, but I can honestly say that it doesn't interest me," he said.
"You can never say never in football or any walk of life, but I am happy where I am, both on and off the pitch, I've got no intention of going anywhere.
"I'm in talks over a new contract at the moment, and it's just a case of dotting the i's and crossing the t's."
