King's Lynn Town have sold striker Junior Morias to Dagenham and Redbridge for a five-figure fee.

It is accepted that the pull of home and being closer to his family and friends was a big factor in Morias' decision to join Lynn's National League rivals.

The 26-year-old, who scored two goals in eight appearances in a Linnets shirt, underwent a medical for the Daggers earlier today.

A statement from the club a short while ago read: "King's Lynn Town can confirm that they have accepted an offer from Dagenham and Redbridge for Junior Morias subject to satisfactory completion of a medical and FA approval.

"The fee will remain undisclosed. The club respects that Junior wishes to be nearer to family and friends in London and wish him well for the future."

Morias' departure is likely to see Lynn step up their search for a new frontman ahead of Saturday's visit from big-spending Wrexham to The Walks.

Lynn, who haven't found the back of the net in more than 500 minutes of league football, only have two fit strikers on their books in Malachi Linton, who is on loan from League One Wycombe, and Gold Omotayo.

Jamaican Morias arrived in a blaze of glory over the summer, but the no-nonsense frontman has been unable to find any kind of form in front of goal with injury and suspension hampering his progress at The Walks.

He began his career in the youth team at Fulham, but turned pro at Wycombe in 2012, joining Boreham Wood in October 2014.

He also played for Whitehawk and St Albans City before joining Peterborough in January 2017, scoring 10 goals in 45 games before moving on to Northampton and St Mirren.

He was on loan to National League Boreham Wood in the second half of last season, scoring once in 11 starts.
