Striker Ben Strevens has left Gillingham for fellow League 2 side Dagenham.
Strevens joined the Gills in the summer as one of manager Martin Allen’s first signings.
But he soon moved down the pecking order with the arrivals of fellow forwards Myles Weston and Deon Burton.
The return to fitness of Adam Birchall left Strevens’ chances further reduced.
Strevens was made available for transfer at the start of the year.
He made 15 appearances for the Gills but started four just four league matches and his last outing was as a substitute against Fleetwood before Christmas.
Strevens tweeted: “Really hope you go on and win the league and get a deserved promotion up to league 1... Gonna miss the boys they've been quality.”
Boss Martin Allen said: “Ben Strevens has been a top professional, a good player and is a really good person around our club.
“However, with the arrival of Cody McDonald and the option of playing Myles Weston upfront the opportunities to actually start games have been limited.
“I’m sure he will do very well for Dagenham and we wish him the very best of luck in the future.”
The Gills, meanwhile, have also completed the formalities of a permanent deal for defender Leon Legge.
His initial one month loan from Brentford has come to an end and he has signed a contract until the summer of 2015.
Legge tweeted: “New challenge and life with Gills. So far I couldn’t wished for better start.”
