The 21-year-old has endured plenty of injury problems since joining the Daggers and is now facing another lengthy period on the sidelines once again.

Manager Daryl McMahon is extremely disappointed to lose the youngster as he was keen to work alongside the former Maidstone United man this campaign.

“He did his cruciate on Saturday against Chelmsford. It’s a huge blow for us, I think he’s a hugely talented player and someone that I was really looking forward to working with this season to push him on and help him develop,” McMahon said.

“It’s a huge blow for us, he’s a hugely talented player, and someone that I was really looking forward to working with this season.

“Pushing him on and helping him getting better. It’s a blow, but he is young enough to come back from it. He’s got a fantastic attitude and he’s grounded.

“He knows everyone at the football club and inside the building will be doing all we can to get him fit and fighting to come back again.”

The former Ebbsfleet United boss also revealed striker Joe Quigley is available for transfer.

“Joe’s available for transfer. At the moment we haven’t used him and feel that we’ve got enough players in that position already in Paul McCallum, Adrian Clifton, Darren McQueen, Kai Brown, Angelo Balanta. Even Myles Weston can play up there.”
