DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE have announced the signing of Arsenal full back Abu Ogogo on a two-year deal, writes MIKE SIMMONDS.

The 19-year-old has been with the Gunners since 2007, playing mainly for their reserve and academy sides, but was highly thought of at the Emirates.

He had a spell at Nottingham Forest in October 2008, before spending time on loan at Barnet last season, where he made nine appearances and scored one goal, although he was also sent off twice.

As exclusively revealed by the Recorder, the teenager met up with his new team-mates today, and becomes John Still's fourth signing after Josh Scott, Stuart Thurgood and Danny Green all put pen to paper recently.
