Pereira to spend 2024-25 campaign at Victoria Road

Luton winger Dion Pereira has rejoined National League side Dagenham & Redbridge on a season-long loan.

The 25-year-old moved to Victoria Road in January, going on to play 17 times and scoring three goals, with three assists, as his solo effort against Hartlepool won the Inner London Cleaning Goal of the Month for April. Pereira originally signed for the Hatters back in 2020 under previous boss Nathan Jones having played for Atlanta United and Watford, but has only featured three times for Town since, spending the majority of his time away from Kenilworth Road.
