Burnett, 22, agreed a two-year deal on Monday, subject to international clearance having been released by Dutch side SC Telstar.

The former Arsenal trainee will link up with fellow Dagger Gavin Hoyte who also graduated through the Gunners' youth system.

"He's still only young and has a lot of ability, experience and talent," Burnett told the club's official website.

"Hopefully we can bring out the best in him and I'm really excited about working with him.

"I also think the fans will be love watching him play, he has a lot of energy and it really shows on the pitch."
