Daggers close in on Button deal

16 April 2009 02:45
Dagenham & Redbridge manager John Still is close to signing Tottenham goalkeeper David Button as cover for the injured Tony Roberts, who could miss the rest of the season.

Roberts is feared to have cracked a rib in the defeat at Gillingham on Monday and if that is confirmed the Welshman will be ruled out of for the rest of the season.

Still was left with only inexperienced goalkeeper David Hogan to call on and has wasted little time in drafting in Button, an England Under-20 international, on an emergency loan subject to paperwork.

Button, 20, has spent loan spells at Grays and Bournemouth already this season.
