League Two strugglers Dagenham & Redbridge have signed defender Luke Pennell from non-league Dunstable Town.

The 20-year-old, who has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract, had been linked with a move to Norwich City.

"Luke was a player I watched whilst at Luton because he was at Dunstable," said Daggers boss John Still.

"I was under the impression he had gone to Norwich, but as soon as I knew he was still available I tried to do something about it."

Pennell was previously on MK Dons' books and had spells at Rushden & Diamonds and Banbury United before joining Dunstable at the beginning of the season.
