DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE defender Danny Foster could be the latest player on his way out of Victoria Road, with League One side Brentford rumoured to be interested, writes MIKE SIMMONDS.
Foster, 24, is now out of contract and the Bees, who won the League Two title last season, are hoping to entice the full back, along with Sam Saunders and Ben Strevens to Griffin Park.
Daggers boss John Still has offered Foster, who has made 191 appearances for the club, a new deal, but is preparing himself for the worst.
"We have offered Danny a new contract, and he will get back to us on that, but I am well aware there might be other clubs interested in him," said Still philosophically.
"I have been speaking to other full backs as well as I am always ahead of what is going on, but if he can get a better deal for himself elsewhere, then he has to think about it."
Daggers are in severe danger of seeing their play-off chasing side from last season completely dismantled, but the boss admitted he is in talks to bring a new striker to the club as replacement for Strevens.

"I knew that 'Strevs' would be going, so I am quite far down the line with that," said Still, who goes on holiday to Cyprus tomorrow.
"I spoken to various players, so if they get back to me with a positive answer, then everything should be tied up.
"Finances are going to be incredibly tight again this year, but we are still looking to bring other players in, but you never know what is going to happen until that first ball is kicked."
Meanwhile, Daggers have offered a new deal to striker Jon Nurse, and the former Stevenage Borough man has indicated he will sign on the dotted line.
"Jon is invaluable to a club like ours as he can fill a number of positions," said Still.
"He has stated he will accept, so we will finalise that one shortly."
