Doe hints at Daggers stay

Defender is flattered by Crystal Palace interest, but has not held transfer talks with any club

Dagenham & Redbridge’s highly-rated defender Scott Doe has revealed there has been no contact with another club regarding a move away from Victoria Road this summer.

The 22-year-old centre-back has been tipped to leave Daggers following their relegation from League One, with Crystal Palace thought to be in the driving seat for his signature.

However, while Doe admitted the rumoured interest in him is flattering, he has not considered the possibility of leaving the club and would be happy to remain a Dagger next season.

“I’ve had no contact with anyone,” said the former Swindon trainee.
