Promising West Ham United defender Josh Pask is poised to link up with Dagenham & Redbridge on loan, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the proposed agreement.

The teenager penned a three-year professional contract with the Hammers in November 2014, announced by the club on their official website, and is considered to be a hot prospect for the future.

The East London outfit are famed for their production of home-grown talent, and their willingness to give academy graduates regular opportunities in the first team.

It is hoped that Pask will be a senior star of the future, but West Ham are eager to manage his development and nurture his potential in the right manner.

Loan spells are a great way to get minutes under the belt, while opening up youngsters to the demands and pressures of competitive football.

Pask will be sent to Dagenham with the intention of getting him important experience at an ambitious League Two outfit.
