Daggers snap up experienced defender, Zakuani

DAGENHAM & REDBRIDGE have announced the signing of experienced central defender, Gabriel Zakuani.

The 33-year-old arrives at Victoria Road on a six-month deal, subject to FA approval, and will bring added steel to the relegation-haunted east Londoners backline.

Zakuani – who was most recently with Sky Bet League Two outfit, Swindon Town – also enjoyed spells with Leyton Orient, Stoke City, Peterborough United, Northampton Town and Gillingham as well as gleening 30 caps for the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Born in Kinshasa, Zaire, Zakuani is expected to feature for the Daggers when they face Barnet at the Hive on Saturday, January 18 (3pm).
