Ogogo, who joins on loan from Bristol Rovers, previously made 225 appearances for the Daggers in his first spell which spanned over six seasons and firmly cemented himself as a fan’s favourite.

The 30-year-old can also play at right-back, something that he did during his first spell with the east London side.

Ogogo began his career with Arsenal before joining the Daggers permanently in 2009 and was a member of our League Two play-off winning team.

He was appointed captain after the departure of Mark Arber at the start of the 2012-13 season and also moved from his position of right-back to central midfield, where he excelled.

He departed for League One side Shrewsbury Town in 2015, making 103 appearances for Salop before joining Coventry City.

He then joined Bristol Rovers where he has played 43 matches to date, scoring three times.
