DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE defender Magnus Okuonghae is expected to tie up his move to League One side Colchester United tomorrow morning.

Sources close to the Us have confirmed that the centre half has agreed a deal with the club, although the fee will be decided by a tribunal as Okuonghae is still under 24.

The move will come as a blow for Daggers as they have now lost four of the side that came so close to making the play-offs last season, with Ben Strevens, Danny Foster and Sam Saunders all gone.

The former Crawley player was a lynchpin of the defence last season, playing in all but one of the league matches, and making 52 appearances overall.

Daggers boss John Still might be tempted to make a foray into the transfer market now, although both Anwar Uddin and Scott Doe might be given their chance in the pre-season friendlies.
