Young Brentford striker Luke Norris has joined Dagenham & Redbridge on loan.

The 20-year-old development squad member will remain with the Daggers until February 23.

It is Norris’ second loan move of the season after a spell at Northampton Town earlier in the campaign.

“We are pleased that Luke has another opportunity to go out on loan,” Brentford academy director Ose Aibangee told the club’s official website

“He did very well at Northampton, particularly at the start of his loan, and got better by playing regular First Team football.

“This loan move will give him another chance to do that.

“Dagenham and Redbridge are just on the edge of the Play-Off race so there will be additional pressure for him, in a team fighting for something.

“We always say that going out on loan is as much about the experience away from the match day as the game time and Luke will get to know a new environment and have to show he can deal with that.

“He is at the stage of his career where he needs to play Football League matches and we will see how he develops over the next month.”

Norris has been at Brentford since the summer of 2010, when he signed a scholarship, before going on to make his debut at the age of 17.
