The 18-year-old striker from Northampton joins Damon Lathrope as the second Academy scholar to be offered a professional deal by manager Glenn Roeder.

“I'm very excited,” said Daley. “I'm grateful for the opportunity I've had, really excited now just to get on, get my head down and progress as much as I can.

“A few weeks ago I got the letter through the post. I opened it and I was very happy. I've signed the contract and it was a very exciting moment for me.”
