NEWPORT County AFC winger Lamar Reynolds has joined Dagenham & Redbridge on a permanent deal.

The 22-year-old Londoner joined County on a two-year deal in the summer of 2017 after a successful spell at Jamie Vardy's V9 Academy.

Reynolds made 15 appearances for the Exiles and scored one goal - against Cheltenham Town in the Checkatrade Trophy.

He helped Michael Flynn's men beat League One Southend United at Roots Hall in the Carabao Cup and also played against Championship club Leeds United in the next round.

But he failed to hold down a regular first team spot and joined Justin Edinburgh's Leyton Orient on loan in January.

Reynolds made 12 appearances for the O's and now joins their National League rivals Dagenham, who are managed by former England caretaker manager Peter Taylor. 

A statement from the Exiles says: "Everyone at Newport County AFC would like to wish Lamar all the best with his future career and wish him and Dagenham & Redbridge the best of luck for their upcoming season."

Reynolds is eager to get going with pre-season now under-way and looking forward to working with new Daggers manager Taylor.

“It is a great opportunity for me and as this club is so local to me its like a dream come true," he said.

"The manager obviously knows the game very well and I think with my inexperience in the higher-class game I believe that he will help me to adapt and show my skills.”

Taylor said: “I am delighted to have signed Lamar as I think that he is an exceptionally exciting forward who is very quick and can play wide or down the middle."
