Striker Ade Azeez turned down the opportunity to return to Dagenham & Redbridge on a permanent basis, and has instead opted to join League rivals AFC Wimbledon.

Striker Ade Azeez turned down the opportunity to return to Dagenham & Redbridge on a permanent basis, and has instead opted to join League rivals AFC Wimbledon.

The 20-year-old finished last season on loan at Victoria Road, scoring the winner in the 3-2 final-day triumph at Cheltenham that sealed a ninth-place finish in League Two for Wayne Burnett’s side.

The Daggers chief had entered discussions with Azeez about a permanent move after his contract expired at Championship side Charlton Athletic, but their offer was rejected, and the striker has now linked up with the Dons.

“We had talks with Ade Azeez about coming over on a permanent basis, but they broke down from a finanical aspect,” said Burnett.
