“Welcome to the club, @chazdaniels13.”

Westfield fans were quick to comment, with one saying: “Absolutely mental signing!”

Another said: “Very unfair on the opposition! Absolutely top quality player!!!”

And another said: “Great addition, fellas.”

One remarked: “Wow has to be a joke surely. What a signing had to look to see if it was April 1.”

Who are these famous footballers?

I was West Ham captain but I almost went to jail over bankruptcy
I’m a former Man Utd star and I once stole a girl from Ronaldo
I’m an ex-Man Utd star – now I own a dog-themed B&B

Another chimed in: “Unreal signing.”

Daniels started his career in the youth team at Tottenham before he had spells at Chesterfield, Leyton Orient and Gillingham.

The left-back joined Bournemouth on loan in 2011, turned the move into a permanent one and remained there until 2020.

During that time, Daniels helped the south coast club win promotion to the Prem in 2015 alongside Cook, who still plays for QPR, and he will be sponsored by his close pal.

After leaving the Vitality Stadium, Daniels turned out for Shrewsbury Town, Portsmouth and Colchester United.
