The 18-year-old, who started his career at Watford before switching to Leyton Orient, has put pen to paper on a one-year contract at Victoria Road.

Obafemi, top scorer for Orient's youth academy in his first season with the club, was released from Brisbane Road at the end of last season.

Daggers boss Wayne Burnett told the club's official website: "I am delighted that Afolabi has signed for the Daggers.

"He's an exciting player and will bring something different to the squad.

"He's still a very young man and still learning his trade, he's worked extremely hard in pre-season and we're delighted with his progress."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
