Striker set to finalise Daggers deal

Dagenham & Redbridge boss John Still is expecting to complete a deal for Chelmsford City striker Rob Edmans this week,

The clubs have agreed a fee that could rise to five-figures with performance-related add-ons and the 24-year-old is expected to finalise the terms on a two-year deal before the weekend.

“Hopefully it can be tied up in the next few days,” said Still. “It’s just a case of dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s.”

Edmans scored five goals in 17 league appearances last season, as Chelmsford reached the Blue Square South Division play-offs.

However, the former Southend United triallist missed his side’s two-leg semi-final defeat to Ebbsfleet United with a broken leg sustained 17 minutes into a 3-1 victory over Hampton & Richmond Borough on the final day of the regular season.
