Luque played 30 times for Dagenham last season, scoring five goals.

He worked with Terry Harris at Victoria Road, with the Stones assistant instrumental in his move to the Gallagher Stadium.

The Spaniard first played in the UK for Heybridge Swifts, where his 30-goal haul earned a transfer to the Football League with Lincoln City.

He dropped back into non-league with Bromley and Concord Rangers before joining Dagenham and spent time with Maidstone in pre-season.

Luque has won plenty of admirers in English football, with former Lincoln boss Danny Cowley saying: “Technically, he’s an excellent footballer, he has a real calmness and composure and can execute under pressure.

"He’s really good around the goal and has good technical quality with his finishing."
