18 year old winger from Dagenham who's signed on loan with a permanent deal agreed for the summer. Supposedly Dagenham turned down £300,000 from Charlton a few months back, so we must be paying a decent fee for him.

Wow...that's a good signing. Good future ahead of him and really could make an impact for us now if I'm honest.

6 figure sum must have been agreed for him.

Could this be some of the maddison money being reinvested. Can't understand all the negativity on facebook with this signing, hopefully we can pick a few more gems up from the lower league, good move by the club to loan him first and then if they still consider him a talent, sign him in he summer. Obviously I would have thought that we have agreed a fee prior to the loan. Hence why it was said that the deal took some time to sort.

From what Venus just said on the radio seems like he's for next season "if things work out ".

I know youtube videos always make players look good but he's scored some crackers.

Never heard of him but had never heard of Stokes and he has done ok and I had never heard of players like Stuart Pearce and he done ok, I would rather sign players with hunger and potential than some others in a final pay day.

Sounds like a really promising signing, not surprised the usual ones who like to bash the club are nowhere to be seen.

I think he's going to be involved with the U21s most likely. On the site it says he'll be training with the U21s tomorrow and possibly playing against Bristol City on Tuesday for them.

To be honest the lower league signings have been good for us like Stokes, Vince

Hopefully Rose will come good after a pre season.

With all the players leaving in a few months we need a new core spine of perm players.

Next season at the moment

RCC
Willis Stokes
Rose JJ Vincelot
Sambou

I would say we need to extend Martin's contract asap. Fleck will be in the championship if we are not promoted.

With Martin that would be 8 first teamers.

It makes a nice change to be thinking about something positive for once. If would be good if the Maddison money allows us to do a few deals like this - nobody is demanding big-name signings, just something to suggest there might be a plan.

to be fair stokes and martin were shite last year, stokes was always getting caught out of position or in possession and every time martin went near the ball it went out of play, BUT credit where its due both have been very good this season under the guidance of mogga.

What Mogga has done is take the likes of Stokes and Martin and develop their game.

I'm all for potential lower league talent being moulded into our team.

Pickering was at a club that should be non league and has all the class of a lower league team
