Former Arsenal youngster Gavin Hoyte has joined Dagenham and Redbridge.

The 22-year-old defender was released by the Club at the end of June but has secured a two-year deal with the Daggers.

Hoyte is the League Two club's first signing of the summer and has already experienced that division during loan spells with AFC Wimbledon and Lincoln City.

Everyone at Arsenal Football Club wishes Gavin the best of luck for the future.
