Ben Strevens has expressed his concern over players being sold during the last transfer window, so was happy when he himself remained with Dagenham.

The striker, who was subject to some interest, insists that he was glad that he remained with the League Two high flyers: ‘I never said I wanted to leave, but said ‘if they want to sell me, then sell me’, but if they want me to stay I’ll be more than happy to,’ Strevens told BBC Essex. ‘They’ve turned the bid down and I couldn’t be more happier.

‘To be honest, it did unsettle me for a couple of games and my form hasn’t been great in the last two or three games.

‘It’s been hanging over my head for a bit, so I’m just happy the January transfer window is out of the way and I can get on with the rest of my season now.’

The 28-year-old will be out of contract in the summer, so could then leave Victoria Road on a free transfer.

How pleased are you that Ben Strevens did stay with Dagenham, and do you think he will stay beyond the end of this season?
