Dagenham & Redbridge have announced that versatile midfielder Mauro Vilhete has signed a new contract with the club until 2023.

Vilhete signed with the Daggers in March 2021 from Wingate & Finchley, scoring one goal in Dagenham & Redbridge’s 3-0 win at home to Halifax.

The Portuguese midfielder began his career at Barnet, where he became the club's youngest ever Football League player in 2010 and has since enjoyed a number of years playing in the National League.

Speaking on Mauro's contract extension, Daryl McMahon said: "It's brilliant that we can welcome Maz back. He came in and helped the team a lot last season. 

"He's very versatile and it's great for us to have someone who can play so many positions as well as he can.
