Lee returns to West Ham after ‘enjoyable’ spell with Daggers

Midfielder heads back to Upton Park, but would consider a return to Dagenham in the future

Oliver Lee returned to West Ham United this week after his three-month loan spell at Victoria Road came to an end, but revealed he would gladly play for Daggers again in the future.

The 20-year-old midfielder has missed just one league game all season and chipped in with three goals, including a thumping free-kick at Crawley last week.

Lee featured for the final time in Saturday’s defeat at Bristol Rovers, but has thoroughly enjoyed his experience as part of John Still’s squad and would consider a return should the opportunity arise.

“My loans up now so I’m going back to West Ham, but I’ve really enjoyed my time here,” he said. “I can’t speak highly enough of everyone.

Daggers assistant boss Terry Harris added: “Ollie Lee has thoroughly enjoyed his time here. He thinks he is a vastly improved player through coming here.”
